1 in stock

Dublin: Stationery Office, 1933. Royal octavo. pp. viii, 199. Green buckram, titled in gilt. A near fine copy.

This chronicle was written by Sir James Perrott son of Sir John Perrott, Lord Deputy of Ireland from 1584-1588. His
prime objective in writing this chronicle was that posterity might take warning from the lessons taught by the Irish
Rebellion. He intended to continue the work till the settlement of Ireland by the Ulster Plantation but he stopped at the
year 1608 on hearing that someone else was writing a chronicle dealing with that event. The chronicle is prefaced by a
disquisition on the use and art of writing histories, together with a brief and not sympathetic account of the customs and
habits of the Irish.
