JOYCE, P.W. A Concise History of Ireland from the earliest times to 1922.


Out of stock

Dublin: Gill, 1895. Fourth edition. Foolscap octavo. pp. viii, 312, 4 (Author’s list). Blind-stamped green cloth, titled in gilt. A very good copy.
“As a concise and readable outline of facts, unalloyed by party prejudice, this little volume far excels all previous sketches of Irish history, and we hope to see it adopted as a text book in the middle and upper class schools and colleges in Ireland.” Literary World. “A perfect marvel for the great amount of information it contains, compressed into a very small space.” - Lyceum. “It tells its story in a vivid and interesting way, and is specially valuable when dealing with the literature, laws, and social institutions of Ancient Ireland.” Scotsman
