Vanishing Dublin - SIGNED

£240.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Earl of Wicklow's introduction to this book explains its genesis thus: "Flora Mitchell knows her Dublin well. Long before most people realised how the character of the city was changing, with her eye for the picturesque, she started to record and .. capture in drawings some of its most historic and charming corners." Now that many of these locations have disappeared under modern developments, these pictures are the only record of what was originally there, and this provide a mine of fascinating information to the student of Irish history, architecture, and social life.

Flora Mitchell (1890 - 1973) was an American-born Irish artist, remembered in particular for her mid-20th-century paintings of old Dublin architecture that has since disappeared.

Our copy is (perhaps uniquely) signed by the artist, and includes a faded photograph of herself and a friend (Marjorie Wheeler), dating from some time in the 1920s or 30s. The book is in excellent, near fine, condition, the equally excellent (unclipped) dust jacket protected by a tight-fitting plastic cover, and showing no signs of wear. The book itself is in substantial greenish paper-covered boards with title etc in gilt on the spine. Inside, there are no signs of wear or use - the binding is firm, and all pages clean and bright. The artist's signature in ink adorns the title page, with the aforementioned photograph pasted underneath it, and a neat pencilled marginal note explaining who is depicted. A very special book.
