TALBOT, Hayden. Michael Collins’ Own Story. Told to Hayden Talbot. [LIMITED EDITION OF 50 COPIES]


1 in stock

With an introduction by Éamonn de Búrca. Dublin: De Búrca, November, 2012. Royal octavo. pp. 256, plus index. Full buckram gilt. And a limited edition of 50 copies only in full goatskin. The American journalist Hayden Talbot first met Michael Collins at the Gresham Hotel in Dublin, shortly after the signing of the Anglo-Irish treaty in December 1921. This work contains an invaluable insight into Collins’ thinking and actions during this epic period of Irish history. It deals at length with Easter Week, The Black and Tans, The Murder of Francis Sheehy Skeffington, the Treaty negotiations and his vision for the resurgent nation. Rare interviews with Arthur Griffith and Eoin MacNeill further enhance this book, which was long out of print.
