Inscribed by William O'Brien (Trade Unionist and close friend of James Connolly) to William Norton, T.D. Top edge gilt. A very good copy."James Connolly is Ireland's first Socialist martyr … Of all the leaders in the Insurrection of Easter Monday, 1916, he was most in the tradition of Wolfe Tone … One does not need to accept the point-of-view of the insurgent leaders in order to realise the value of Connolly's work as a Socialist historian and propagandist. Syndicalist, incendiary, agitator - call him what you will: it still remains true that his was the most vital democratic mind in the Ireland of his day" - Robert Lynd."
