Ireland its Scenery, Character, etc

£39.99

Product description

Ireland its Scenery, Character, etc – volume III only
Mr & Mrs S C Hall
In 3 volumes: volume III only

Hall, Virtue, and Co, London. A new edition; nd.

Hardback; 180 x 250 mm; brown boards with titles (“Hall’s Ireland”) in gold on spine; viii & 512 pages, all edges gilt; 217 illustrations, some with tissue guards. No dust jacket.

The book is in fair condition. Possibly ex-library: “D.25” handwritten on spine. The binding is generally sound although there is partial cracking along the gutter of the back endpapers. Wear to the covers. Tanning of the front and back matter. Some foxing internally. Writing in blue ink on the back of the illustration at page 306/307, and on the tissue guard page 392/393.
The 3 volumes written by Mr and Mrs Hall under the title “Ireland, its Scenery, Character, etc was originally published in London between 1841 and 1843. The aim of the authors was to entice English readers to visit Ireland, and to convince them that the political union of Great Britain with this country was beneficial to both the Irish and the British. Thus, the necessity of the Union is demonstrated by scientific methods, but also by literary anecdotes and beautiful illustrations made to please the Victorian readers, who appreciated the picturesque descriptions of Irish scenery, or the gothic characteristics of local superstitions.
