PEARSE, Patrick The Home-Life of Padraig Pearse. As told by himself, his family and friends. Edited by his sister Mary Brigid Pearse. Illustrated with family portraits. Dublin: Browne & Nolan 1934. pp. 167. Crown octavo. Black cloth, titled in green on upper cover and along spine. Top edge green. A very good copy in rare repaired dust jacket. Rare.

After Mrs. Pearse died in 1932 there were legal difficulties over her Will and over the royalties on Patrick Pearse's writings. These led to problems between the two surviving daughters, Margaret and Mary Brigid. When Mary Brigid published this book in 1934, Margaret claimed some of the proceeds as having legal title to Patrick Pearse's autobiographical material. Mary withdrew the book from circulation, thus making it rare.
