JOYCE, P.W. A Child’s History of Ireland


1 in stock


A Child's History of Ireland.

Coloured frontispiece from The Book of MacDurnan. With numerous illustrations and folding map of Ireland.

London: Longmans and Dublin: Gill, 1903. pp. xvi, 508, 4 (publisher's list). Green cloth with gilt Celtic designs and title. Presentation inscription from the Bibliographer John S. Crone on front free endpaper. New front endpaper. A very good copy.

P.W. Joyce followed in the footsteps of Bunting and Petrie, of O'Donovan and O'Curry, reaching, however, a larger public than any of these four had reached, for the fields he laboured in were more numerous and, as well as that, he principally wrote not for scholars but for the ordinary people of Ireland, people such as he had known in that lovely and never-forgotten countryside round about Glenosheen.
