About this Item

Tight, some aging, square. Green cloth covers with black lettering are faded and rubbed. Spine has softened ends and a reading crease. No dust jacket. There is the beginning of a crack on the end paper gutters. Age tanning of exterior page edges, end papers and title page. Some pages with fingerprints. A small margin note on page 44. A 1937 newspaper clipping with a poem about Both-Chonais has been attached to page 87 (which mentions Both-Chonais) with a straight pin (now rusted) which has left a shadow on the facing page. "Under the nom-de-plume of "Maghtochair", Michael Harkin wrote a series of papers on the history and antiquities of Inis-Owen, that first appeared in the columns of the Derry Journal. These he afterwards collected, revised, and published, in1867, in book-form under the title "Inis-Owen, Its History, Traditions and Antiquities" by Maghtochair Inishowen (Irish: Inis Eoghain "Island of Eoghan"), County Donegal is Ireland's largest peninsula. The Introduction to this 1935 edition by F. Convery states "Mr. Harkin was familiar with the best authorities available in his day and from them he sifted with scholarly care the main facts regarding his native peninsula.Much of the folklore and allegory of the old peninsula, had it not been for Michael Harkin's contribution must have been lost.".
