About this Item

Thomas Nicolas Burke (1830-1883), a Dominican priest, was noted as a "great patriot" and speaker. He toured America in 1872 to refute the anti-Irish sentiments of the English historian Anthony Froude. Burke is referenced by James Joyce in "Dubliners" for his speaking ability. This is a Very Good (Plus) to Near Fine copy of the Second Edition. Large, heavy octavo. Highly decorated brown cloth binding, stamped with black and gilt. Clean text; 489 pages. Signature dated 1879 on the FFEP. The front gutter is cracked, but holding quite well (these large and beautiful Victorian editions are problematic due to their size, and it is not unusual to see issues with the gutters). Mild bumping and rubbing, as expected. A lovely book that deserves pride of place in the library. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 002751
