Dublin: J.Fisher, 1 May 1770. Engraving, coloured by hand, by Edward Rooker. Image size (including text): 13 3/4 x 19 5/8 inches. Sheet size: 17 3/16 x 22 5/16 inches.

A fine view of the Eagle's Nest, now in Killarney National Park, County Kerry Ireland.

Fisher was born in Dublin, and 'Having a taste for art, he studied it by himself, and eventually succeeded in obtaining the patronage of the nobility. He produced some landscapes which were clever attempts to reproduce nature... [and were] very well suited for engraving, and a set of views of Carlingford Harbour and its neighbourhood were finely engraved by Thomas Vivares, James Mason, and other eminent landscape engravers of the day. In [1789] Fisher published a folio volume called A Picturesque Tour of Killarney , consisting of 20 views engraved in aquatinta, with a map, some general observations, &c. He also published other illustrations of scenery in Ireland.' ( DNB ).
