Every Monday I will show off my collection of maps that I have been collecting over the years these range from some the oldest maps with some great history connected to them. To the cheapest throwaway maps that are given out in every major city in the world. I don't believe in keeping it in perfect condition so still have marks on them too which you can extract a story from just like your own treasure map.

This is a map of Munster from the Marsh's Library beside St Patrick's Cathedral. Marsh’s Library was founded in the early eighteenth century by Archbishop Narcissus Marsh (1638-1713).Designed by Sir William Robinson (d.1712) the Surveyor General of Ireland, it is one of the very few 18th century buildings left in Dublin that is still being used for its original purpose. Many of the collections in the Library are still kept on the shelves allocated to them by Marsh and by Elias Bouhéreau, the first ibrarian, when the Library was opened.
