[Here] a selection of these is catalogued and discussed in close readings. The interdisciplinary approach to the material crosses boundaries of art, architectural, social and local history. While there is a particular focus on depictions of the great houses of Ireland, there are also images of castles, townscapes, gardens and garden buildings, archaeological remains and interiors. The publication is the most in-depth catalogue yet attempted of an Irish private collection." Very good condition - minor shelfwear to dust jacket..
