First edition, first printing. Publisher's original black cloth with titles in gilt to the spine, in dustwrapper. A near fine copy, the binding square and tight. The contents with a 0.5cm tear to the foot of the half title page are otherwise clean and fresh throughout and free from any previous owners' inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the near fine lightly rubbed dustwrapper which has a couple of minor marks to the rear panel. Not price-clipped (160/- net to the front flap). An excellent copy.
The first printed catalogue detailing all the religious establishments in Ireland from the time of St Patrick to the early seventeenth century. A definitive work, based upon 14 years of research. The scarcest title in the series (its companion volumes being "England & Wales" and "Scotland").
