Only 1 left in stock
Seanchas is a multi-disciplinary collection of essays and while archaeology, history and literature are the main categories, architectural history and law also feature. The sheer scope of the book reflects the extent of Professor Byrne’s scholarship. The volume is not divided into discrete sections for each category; rather, the organisation is chronological, starting in late prehistory and progressing to the nineteenth century: each essay, irrespective of the category to which it might belong, placed according to the time-period it covers. Here is a treasure trove of scholarly learning about Ireland’s past. The breadth of scholarship displayed in the variety of these essays mirrors Francis John Byrne’s own learning. This is a handsome volume, handsomely produced.
This rare and secondhand volume is both out of print and signed.
