From the cover: “During the late eighteenth century, the landed gentry of Ireland spearheaded the founding of a considerable Irish industry, dedicated to beauty in architecture, design and decoration. In all disciplines of style, Ireland set extraordinary standards and achieved many world firsts, including the first public building in the Neo-Palladian style; marvellously decorated copper-plate-printed fabric; silver and cut crystal; and the perfection of the mezzotint technique. Less pretentious than their English counterparts, Irish Georgian houses distinguish themselves not just by their wild and wonderful settings and inspiring classicism, but also by an extraordinary quality of workmanship.
