"Dublin, Part II" traces the growth of the city from 1610 to 1756. The histories of over 2000 sites (streets, markets, schools etc) are referenced in the extensive topographical index and explained in the accompanying essay. A composite reproduction of Rocque's plan (1756) is one of a range of maps and views presented in large-format. "Dublin, Part II" is number 19 in the "Irish Historic Towns Atlas" series, and follows on from number 11 in the series "Dublin, Part I to 1610" (2002).
