London & Belfast: Simms & M'Intyre, 1847. William Carleton (1794-1869), product of an Irish hedge school and his auto-didact tenant-farmer father, was controversial in his time. An Anglican convert, he was anti-Roman Catholic and consequently anti-nationalist. A significant, if uneven author, he published his first book in 1830 and died in alcoholic poverty.This is a Good only copy of the First Edition. Although well-held institutionally, this is a rare title in the trade. Identified as part of the publisher's "Parlour Library."
