Walker's Tour through Ireland, a New Geographical Pastime,
Published March 9, 1812.  

This card shows a map of Ireland.  A copy of the map was used in the 2015 exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago called Ireland: Crossroads of Art and Design, 1690-1840.

The exhibit was quite successful.  Originally scheduled for March 17, 2015 through June 7th, it was extended until June 21, 2015 by popular demand.  Below is an ad card for the exhibit, featuring a green portable harp c. 1820 by John Egan.
