Description


This is a 1780 Robert Pool and John Cash city map or plan of Dublin, Ireland. The map depicts the city from the Royal Hospital to the Marine School and from Eccles Street to a bridge of 'part of the new canal'. Highly detailed, myriad streets are labeled throughout Dublin, some of which are rather small alleys. Numerous buildings are labeled, including Trinity College, the Parliament House, the castle, several hospitals, and St. Stephen's Green. The 'new canal' is illustrated in the lower left corner, with the intended extension of the canal shown by dashed lines. Wards along the city's outskirts are labeled but are left blank. Some intended streets are shown along the right border bur are left unlabeled.
Census and Publication History
This map was created by Robert Pool and John Cash for publication in Views of the Most Remarkable Public Buildings, Monuments, and Other Edifices in the City of Dublin. Views of the Most Remarkable… is well represented in institutional collections but is scarce on the private market. Finding an example of the city map of Dublin backed on period linen is extremely rare and suggests that at one point this map may have been removed from the book and mounted on linen for practical use around Dublin. We have found no evidence that it was ever issued as a separate issue map, which led us to the above conclusion.

Robert Pool (17?? - 18??) was an Irish architectural draughtsman who is principally remembered for collaborating on a book entitled Views of the Most Remarkable Public Buildings, Monuments, and Other Edifices in the City of Dublin with fellow architectural draughtsman John Cash. Pool was admitted into the Dublin Society's School of Drawing and Architecture on November 2, 1769 and again on February 22,1770. In 1777, he and Cash submitted the drawings for their celebrated book before the Dublin Society. Pool was designated as an 'architect' in Wilson's Dublin Dictionary, but no buildings designed by him were recorded. Little is known of Pool's private life or, frankly, of his career either.

John Cash (17?? - 18??) was an Irish architectural draughtsman best known for his collaboration with Robert Pool on a book entitled Views of the Most Remarkable Public Buildings, Monuments, and Other Edifices in the City of Dublin. Cash entered the Dublin Society's School of Drawing in Architecture on April 1, 1773 and by 1777 had submitted the drawing for his and Pool's book to the Dublin Society. Little is known about John Cash, but a record exists of a man by that name marrying Isabella Tudor in a church in Dublin on February 19, 1783. Learn More...


John Lodge (1735-1796) was a British engraver, map seller, draughtsman and stationer active in London from roughly 1755 to the late 18th century. Lodge, born in London, was apprenticed to Thomas Jefferys, one of the most prominent and prolific map publishers and engravers of his day. He produced several maps for The Gentleman's Magazine and The Political Magazine and other publications. He also engraved book-illustrations, portraits and botanical plates and taught etching and engraving. Around the 1780's, he is believed to have lived to Dublin, where he did a significant amount of engraving work for Dublin booksellers. Lodge was survived by his wife Ann, to whom he left his entire estate, and his son John Lodge, who was also an engraver. Learn More...
