MacNIOCAILL, G. Ed. by. The Red Book of the Earls of Kildare. [THE GREAT FITZGERALDS]


1 in stock

Dublin: I.M.C., 1964. Royal octavo. pp. xix, 210. Red buckram, title in gilt on spine. Limited to 400 copies only. A fine copy. The ‘Red Book of the Earls of Kildare’ is a cartulary containing transcripts of some two hundred documents relating to lands of the Kildare Fitzgeralds in Leinster, Munster and Connaught. The entries begin at the close of the twelfth to the early part of the sixteenth century. They were compiled by Philip Flattisbury of Johnstown, near Naas and were completed by him in 1523.
The Red Book has been cited by Orpen and others, but neither the full text nor an adequate calendar has hitherto been available. This edition presents the text in full, with introduction and indexes.
