MARTIN, F.X. Ed. by. Leaders and Men of the Easter Rising:


1 in stock

Dublin 1916. London: Methuen, 1967. First edition. pp. xii, 276. Green papered boards, titled in gilt on spine. Some minor spotting to fore-edge. With neat stamp. A very good copy in lightly frayed dust jacket. The Easter Rising was planned and led by a secret council of seven men - Pearse, Clarke, Plunkett, Ceannt, MacDonagh, MacDermott and Connolly, most of them were poets and writers. With little or no prospect of military success the rebellion was brutally crushed within a week and the leaders executed. This knee-jerk reaction shocked the Irish people and kindled the flame of freedom and nationality which eventually led to independence and the first break-up of the British Empire.
