With some account of the evolution of Georgian architecture and decoration. By Thomas U. Sadlier & P.L. Dickinson. List of subscribers. Six volumes. With numerous plates and illustrations. Dublin: Printed for the Society, 1909-1915. Large 4to. Armorial bookplate of Gladys L. Hornibrook. Modern matching cloth with the original upper covers laid on. Occasional spotting. A very desirable set at a very reasonable price. Very rare.The Georgian Society was founded on 21, February 1908 by the Rev. J.P. Mahaffy to make a record of Irish architecture, doomed, as he considered it was, to “decay and disappearance”. There were only a limited number of each volume printed for subscribers only: three hundred copies of volume one; four hundred of volume two; five hundred and fifty of volumes three and four; six hundred of volume five, and seven hundred of the ‘Mansions’ which would account for the rarity and great difficulty in acquiring complete sets. On the upper cover of the bindings are illustrations of Georgian Dublin door knockers.
