1 in stock
A selection of Irish songs by the poets of the last century. With poetical translations by the Late James Clarence Mangan, now for the first time published. With the Original Music, and Biographical Sketches of the Authors; and Irish text revised by W.H. Hennessey. Edited by C.P. Meehan. Dublin: James Duffy and Sons, n.d. (c.1883). Third edition. Square 16mo. pp. lx, 355. Contemporary half dark green morocco over cloth boards, title in gilt direct on spine. From the library of Lady Gregory with her signature in pencil on front endpaper, notes in pencil in her hand and sketch by her on lower pastedown. A nice copy. Mangan’s translations from the Gaelic poets of 18th-century Munster would have an obvious appeal for Lady Gregory, with her interest in the folklore and poetry of her home around Coole. Lady Gregory with her signature in pencil on front endpaper, notes in pencil in her hand and sketch probably by her on lower pastedown, possibly of a heraldic device. A very good copy.
