Communicated through a living friend by [Sir Arthur] Chichester’s Ghost. With two coloured folding maps of Ireland. Edinburgh & London: Blackwood, 1890. pp. [vii], 192, 24 (publisher’s list). Cloth, title in black on upper cover. Ex libris with armorial bookplate and stamps of the University of London. Darkening to rebacked spine. A very good copy. Very rare. A rather biased view of a Scottish solution to Ireland’s problems: “Nothing that I have proposed will cause any pecuniary loss, or real injustice of any kind, to any Roman Catholic. And on the other hand, removing him to America will not only improve his worldly prospects, if he is honest and industrious, but will do him a great moral service, by placing him in a new moral atmosphere, to make a new start under a Government whose faults are indeed many and great”. The folding linen-backed maps depict: The Distribution of Protestant and Roman Catholics; Map to show Proposed New Divisions.
