The Londonderry Plantation 1609 - 41

£275.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

487 pp. Good overall. SCARCE 1ST EDITION. Hardback - 1939 with 16 maps and plans all present.

Green cloth boards with gilt titles to spine are poor. Marked and faded, especially to spine. Small splits to edges of spine in places. One larger split (4cm) to head of spine at rear. Bumps to corners and spine. Page edges are grubby.

Internally good overall. Right front endpaper has been partially removed, lightly tanned throughout. Binding is firm but gutter has cracked and webbing partially visible in a few places. Some occasional, very neat pencil marks and annotations (including to rear endpaper) although some Biro underlining to pgs 24, 25 and 26. Small, embossed college library stamp to title page.

Maps and plans are very good; clean, neatly folded and firmly attached.

Taken from the Preface ............ "This book is an account of the City of London's share in the Ulster plantation, a chapter in the history of land-confiscation and British colonization in Ireland. It is also a study in the Irish policy of the early Stuarts, and in their relations with the city of London. As a factor in the growth of that antagonism between London and the crown which counted for so much in the civil war, the Londonderry business has a special significance for English history.".
