Ward and Lock's Pictorial and Descriptive Guide to Connemara and the West of Ireland was published in London circa 1890 and can be viewed as a continuation of a myriad of books published in Ireland for the more intrepid foreign or Irish traveller throughout the nineteenth-century. However, with the advent of widespread rail communication in Ireland, the Pictorial & Descriptive Guide filled a niche for a new type of guide appealing to a new type of tourist. The Guide sought to provide information on every conceivable aspect of the tourist's travels, ranging from prices and descriptions of hotels to descriptions of the principal towns, the important antiquarian views and the botanical specimens that the traveller could expect to see on any one of the thirteen tours described. Ward and Lock's Guide, represents an important source for anyone interested in social history, travel history or the development of the Irish tourism industry. It is lavishly illustrated throughout, including 6 colour maps and many colour plates covering much of Counties Galway, Mayo and Sligo.
