About this Item

Volume I: xi, 251 pp, b&w frontis, preface, 10 chapters. Volume II: vii, 255 pp, b&w frontis, 9 chapters. Second Edition, 1897. The author places the record of the town beside the history of the stage, one being a reflection of the other, a study of each seeming necessary to the understanding of both.as a picture of social life in the Irish capital during the Eighteenth Century--a varied panorama of Dublin in its pre- Union days, with its state processions, its parliament, its court festivities, its reckless gambling, duelling, and abductions, its roystering and extravagance, the whole illuminated by a gaiety that has become a tradition. Inked name on ffeps. Age-toned spines, text block edges and endpapers with lightly soiled bords and minor edgewear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Red cloth with gilt top edge, gilt embossed mask of drama on front board, and gilt lettering to spine. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 000681
