SHEEHY SKEFFINGTON, Hanna: British Militarism as I Have Known It.


1 in stock

Portrait frontispiece. Tralee: The Kerryman, 1946 (fifth printing). pp. 24. White paper wrappers, title printed in green on upper cover. Some fraying to edges, otherwise a very good copy. This pamphlet made a dramatic impact in America when it was published during Hanna Sheehy Skeffington’s visit to the States in 1917. It was banned in England and Ireland at that time but was reprinted twice in the United States in 1918. Hanna toured the country speaking in favour of the Easter Rising and the graphic description of the death of her husband made a deep impression. Colour was added to her words by the opinion of Tim Healy, expressed in the pamphlet in relation to the court martial of her husband, that “never since the trial of Christ was there a greater travesty of justice”.

Hanna was even granted a personal interview with President Wilson in January 1918. Also includes a photograph of Mrs. F. Sheehy Skeffington and her son Owen, taken in New York.
