Ex variis Bibliothecis collecta, Scholiis et commentariis illustrata, et pluribus Appendicibus aucta: complectitur Tomus Secundus Sacrarum ejusdem insulae Antiquitatum - Louvain 1647. Dublin: By Éamonn de Búrca, 1997. We have republished ‘one of the rarest of all Irish books’, with a new introduction by Pádraig Ó Riain. The edition is limited to 300 copies, and handsomely bound in blue quarter morocco, title on spine, top edge gilt, red silk marker. Fine in slipcase.
Lecky described this volume: “as one of the most interesting collections of Lives of the saints in the world. It is very shameful that it has not been reprinted”. The new introduction by Pádraig Ó Riain, contains the first published account of Colgan’s recently discovered manuscript notes to the Triadis. This reprint should stimulate further the growing interest in the history of the Irish saints.
