3 Barrington, Sir Jonah Rise and Fall of the Irish Nation
New York D. & J. Sadlier & Co. 1848 Second Edition. Hardcover Very Good No Jacket 
New York: D. & J. Sadlier & Co., 1848. Sir Jonah Barrington (1760-1814) was a supporter of the Irish Parliamentary Party. A popular memoirist, although plagued by personal scandal. This is an interesting work, containing his observations of political corruption and "naming names" - those MPs who had voted against the Act of Union in 1799-1800. Originally published in 1833. This particular edition not in WorldCat; Quercus suggests that this is probably the Second Edition published in America by Sadlier. A Very Good (Minus) copy. Light brown cloth binding with gilt lettering and designs on the spine. Text generally bright with some foxing throughout; very readable, although pages are wrinkled in a manner that suggests previous exposure to moisture. The signatures are strong, but somewhat stiff. No dustjacket; in an archival plastic protector. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Second Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket.

4 Barrington, Sir Jonah Rise and Fall of the Irish Nation
New York D. & J. Sadlier & Co. 1845 First American Edition. Hardcover Very Good Minus No Jacket 
New York: D. & J. Sadlier & Co., 1845. Barrington (1760-1814) was a supporter of the Irish Parliamentary Party. In this famous work, originally published in 1833, he "names names" of those he thought had sold their votes. This is a Very Good Minus copy of the First American Edition, rather scarce, with only two institutional holdings. Precedes the Dublin edition. Green cloth binding, with decorative stampings on the front board, and a fancy gilt spine that features an Irish harp and a wolfhound. 472 pages, including the "Red List" of those who voted against the Act of Union. Multiple inscriptions trace a fascinating trail of ownership that Quercus has not been able to completely decifer. At one time possessed by Georgetown's Philodemic Society (perhaps "borrowed"?), it has travelled to Hays County, Texas; research might reveal a fascinating story. This copy is rather tender in condition: the covers are worn and bumped, and the front signature is coming loose, although holding. Although the text is bright, the pages are stiff to turn. Because of these condition issues, Quercus offers this as a Binding Copy, in need of repair or restoration. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First American Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good Minus/No Jacket. First Edition.
