Waterford: Printed by John Bull, 1825. 12mo. Contemporary half red morocco. A very good copy. Extremely rare.
COPAC locates 2 copies only. WorldCat 1. In his preface the author refers to the Rev Mr. Ryland and his valuable ‘History of the County and City of Waterford’, when speaking of the superior beauties of the scenery which forms the subject of this poem, makes the following just and elegant observations: “The character of Curraghmore is grandeur, - not that arising from the costly or laborious exertions of man, but rather the magnificence of Nature. The beauty of the situation consists in its lofty hills, rich vales, and almost impenetrable woods, which deceive the eye, and give the idea of boundless forests. The variety of the scenery is calculated to please in the highest degree, and to gratify every taste; - from the lofty mountain to the quiet and sequestered walk on the bank of the river, every gradation of rural beauty may be enjoyed.”
