1 in stock

History of the Irish Parliament 1692-1800. Commons, Constituencies and Statues. Illustrated. Six volumes. Belfast, Ulster Historical Foundation, 2002. Fine.

The Parliament which sat in Dublin from 1692 to 1800 was the last Irish elected assembly to represent the whole of the island. The principal issues to emerge during that time: The Penal Code; Legislative Independence; The 1798 Rebellion, and the Passing of the Act of Union of 1800. These were not only crucial in themselves but continue to influence our understanding of Irish history over the last three hundred years.

The work classifies statutes relating to the constitution, education, local government, law and order, parliament, religion, manufacturing, employment and the land. It contains constituency histories of the 300 parliamentary, county, borough and university seats and biographical notices of the 2,300 MPs who sat during this period.
