An Illustrated History Of Ireland

£12.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Written by one of Ireland’s most noted cultural historians, this beautifully written and illustrated work covers Irish history from the earliest times to the mid-nineteenth century. Although written for children, the author admitted in his introduction that adults had found it equally readable and informative. Starting with an explanation of the ancient originating legends of the Irish people, the author sorts out fact from fiction in an entertaining story-telling manner, keeping the narrative gripping and eventful through the centuries of tumultuous Irish history.

Hardback book without dust jacket. The binding is somewhat loose and there is an inscription inside the front cover, but otherwise in good condition. Map in frontispiece, and well-illustrated throughout.
