Book Description

publication number XXIV of The Manx Society for Publication of National Documents & one of only 156 copies printed; pre-title page of Manx Society giving date established (1858), logo, volume number, & date of publication, followed by list of officers of the society. The first edition of this work was issued in 1861 at which time the Compiler had not the opportunity of consulting sufficient authorities which a work of this nature required but had mainly to rely upon such as he possessed in his own library Since that time he has been enabled to add considerably to the information contained therein by the addition of numerous particulars to the works there enumerated and has also recorded some 300 more works connected with the Isle of Man or that particularly allude to it. Some pages remain uncut. (We also have for sale the original 1861 first edition of this work.)
