George Allen & Unwin, 1923, Hardback ..
Condition: Good. Gently faded at the spine, darkened at the extremities. Edges of the textblock heavily tanned. Endpapers browned. Text bright and tight.

From the author’s introduction: “This book is intended primarily for students and teachers of Irish History, to whom it is hoped the extracts given will be of service, whatever generalisations they may base upon them. Most of the selections have been made to illustrate English rule, and are largely, though not by any means entirely, drawn from English sources and official State Papers. It should be borne in mind that almost all writers of the period were animated by a certain amount of religious and political bias.”
