MONTEITH, Captain Robert. Casement’s Last Adventure


1 in stock

Illustrated. Chicago: Privately Printed, 1932. Medium octavo. N.d. (c.1932). First Limited Edition. pp. xii, [6], 191, 12. Recent black buckram. Signature of Denis Griffin, Mountjoy Prison, Easter Monday, 1942 on front endpaper. A good copy. €165 Both Monteith and Casement started out as loyal servants of the British Crown and ended up as its most implacable enemies. Monteith joined the British army in his teens and won medals for his service

in India and South Africa. Casement won a knighthood for his humane investigations in Africa and South America. Both came to detest the ruthless methods of British Imperialism, and dedicated themselves to rid Ireland of that régime.
This work tells the tragic story of Casement’s attempt to raise an Irish Brigade in Germany, his unsuccessful attempt to purchase large quantities of arms and his capture after landing at Banna Strand, County Kerry.
