Book Description

Original green cloth with blind stamped shamrock to the front board, and gilt titles and shamrock decorations. Original dust wrapper (now protected) with an illustration of an Irish map to the front cover, and a list of other novels to the rear panel. First issue. “Taking the town of Druninara as a setting, he presents with the accuracy of an eye witness vivid and poignant scenes of that futile rising that nevertheless was the beginning of the end of British ascendancy in Ireland.” (Publisher’s blurb). The Reverend Joseph Cannon Guinan was a parish priest in Ardagh, County Longford. 19 cm x 13 cm.
Dealer Notes
Both book and wrapper are in excellent condition. The wrapper is fractionally darkened, and has a few minor nicks to the edges, but overall a very presentable wrapper. The boards are clean and bright - without flaw. Internally clean and tidy with a touch of foxing to the closed page edge only.
