Sights and Scenes in our Fatherland – Thomas Lacy.
Only 1 left in stock
Thomas Lacy of Wexford, sometimes styled ‘the dacent Lacy’ was employed as assistant to the solicitor responsible for negotiating rights of way for the extension of the railway from Dublin to Wexford. This work is an excellent account of tours he undertook in Ireland between 1853-61, which are remarkable for the detail in which towns, gentlemen’s seats, public buildings, and the interiors of churches are described. With engraved frontispiece and a profusion of text vignettes, this very scarce book is in very good condition for its age.
