Miller 1.
Second state of the first Dolmen publication. The first book by The Dolmen Press, issued from Sion Hill House, Drumcondra. A small collection of ballads about Ireland’s ‘travelling people’ published on Gathering Day of Puck Fair, 1951. The establishing of the press and their first publication was received with such enthusiasm that the little book sold out in a couple of weeks. This encouragement resulted in the Dolmen Press continuing with publishing and they went on to be one of Ireland’s greatest printing houses.
