About this Item

"An editors task is not easy when confronted with reams of text and only a limited amount of pages to use some very fine articles of great historical fact, and indeed importance, especially when dealing with Clan history. This is the situation I found myself in when tackling this book. But historians are inclined to go into great detail, and unwittingly sometimes, loose {SIC} their readers interest, so I have tried to keep in simple, and yet, do justice to the finest of articles submitted by the writers for publication, hoping not only to keep the readers interest, but with a special regard to the younger reader, who after all, we depend on to carry on the tradition of our clan, and without whose interest we are lost. I hope I have succeeded. Different writers have different versions of the same story sometimes, and although it may seem repitious, it is important to document these various versions for posterity, especially when dealing with clan history. On reading the various histories of the clan, we get a much clearer picture of our past, as each writer adds his or her own angle, often perhaps omitted in other versions. And so we learn little by little and on doing so, we become interested.I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed 'tacking' it together and I hope you will spread the newsfar and wide that our clan is organized and growing in strength daily. The organising committee invite you to enrol {SIC} in our clan, whether your name is Sweeney, or any of the various derivatives of the name, or if you are not a Sweeney, but of Sweeney origin, then you qualify." This book has 152 pages and is illustrated. The previous owner has underlined numerous passages as well written side notations, in NO way effecting the readability of the text. Overall, this is a VERY GOOD copy of this VERY SCARCE title. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 065245
