Baltimore: The Norman, Remington Company, 1914. Hardcover. This book covers the history of Ireland from 1641-1653, a turbulent period that included the rising of 1641, the Confederation of Kilkenny, and the Cromwellian Conquest of Ireland. It is told through the histories of Owen Roe O'Neill, an Irish patriot, and James, Earl of Ormond, the English governor of Ireland. O'Neill's quest ended in death when the cause for which he was fighting failed. Ormond, on the other hand, was triumphant and was raised to the rank of Duke. This is a scarce title, especially in the US. Octavo. Brown cloth-covered boards with olive-green cloth on spine and gilt title to spine. Some scraping to spine and signs of wear to front and back covers, especially to corners. Pages show toning, but are very clean. 246 pages, including index. IREHIST/081522. Very Good.
