Lewis, A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland - Comprising the Several Counties; Lewis, Samuel. A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland – Comprising the Several Counties; Cities; Boroughs; Corporate, Market, and Post Towns; Parishes and Villages. With Historical and Statisical Descriptions: Embellished with Engravings of the Arms of the Cities, Bishopricks, Corporate Towns, and Boroughs; And of the Seals of the Several Municipal Corporations. By Samuel Lewis. / Together with an ATLAS: Lewis’s Atlas – Comprising the Counties of Ireland and a general Map of the Kingdom. Reprint of the original London Edition from 1837. Three Volumes (complete with Atlas). Galway, Kenny’s 1995. Folio. Pagination: Volume I: LXVIII, 675 pages. / Volume II: 737 pages with a “Table for Converting Irish Miles into British” / Atlas: Including Maps for all 32 Counties. Original Hardcover. Green cloth in original slipcase. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear.

Samuel Lewis (c.1782 – 1865) was the editor and publisher of topographical dictionaries and maps of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. The aim of the texts was to give in ‘a condensed form’, a faithful and impartial description of each place. The firm of Samuel Lewis and Co. was based in London. Samuel Lewis the elder died in 1865. His son of the same name predeceased him in 1862.

A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland

First published in 1837 in two volumes, with an accompanying atlas, it marked a new and significantly higher standard in such accounts of Ireland. Apart from The Parliamentary Gazetteer of Ireland published in 1845, it has not been superseded. The first edition is available online. A second edition was published in 1842.

In the 1837 preface, the editor noted that:

“The numerous county histories, and local descriptions of cities, towns, and districts of England and Wales, rendered the publication of their former works, in comparison with the present, an easy task. The extreme paucity of such works, in relation to Ireland, imposed the necessity of greater assiduity in the personal survey, and proportionately increased the expense.″

Lewis relied on the information provided by local contributors and on the earlier works published such as Coote’s Statistical Survey (1801), Taylor and Skinner’s Maps of the Road of Ireland (1777), Pigot’s Trade Directory (1824) and other sources. He also used the various parliamentary reports and in particular the census of 1831 and the education returns of the 1820s and early 1830s. Local contributors were given the proof sheets for final comment and revision. The names of places are those in use prior to the publication of the Ordnance Survey Atlas in 1838. Distances are in Irish miles (the statute mile is 0.62 of an Irish mile).
The dictionary gives a unique picture of Ireland before the Great Famine. (Wikipedia)
