The Poetry and Song of Ireland

The Poetry and Song of Ireland by John Boyle O’Reilly

The Poetry and Song of Ireland 1887
The Poetry and Song of Ireland 1887

This is a First Edition, in remarkable condition, of The Poetry and Song of Ireland with Biographical Sketches of her Poets, compiled and Edited by John Boyle O’Reilly, illustrated with steel and wood engravings. There is an inscription written in pencil on first page that reads: “Mr. to Mrs. E Ibbetson 1892 “. The book was printed in 1887 by Gay Brothers & Co., New York. Corners of the green embossed and gilt hardcover and spine do show some wear, while spine is intact and endpages are attached. A small
dash of the gilt can be found on the bottom paper edge but the rest is gone. I found a half inch rip on the top of one illustration and Most of the engravings of the poets still have the protective paper in place, however, there are light brown spots on the margins where the protective paper didn’t cover the poets’ biographical sketches. Book measures 8″ wide, 10″ tall and 3” thick with 814 pages. This rare antique book of The Poetry and Song of Ireland is in very good condition and would make a fabulous addition to your library.
