2 Breen, Dan My Fight for Irish Freedom
Dublin The Talbot Press 1924 First Edition. Hardcover Very Good Plus No Jacket 
Dublin: The Talbot Press, 1924. Dan Breen (1894-1969) wrote one of the most famous memoirs of the Revolution and Civil War in Ireland; although it has been reprinted in recent years, it remains uncommon in the earlier printings. This is a Very Good Plus copy of the First Edition. There is no publication date, but Irish publishers were sometimes inconsistant at this time, and bibliographers generally have the date as 1924. Introduction by Joseph McGarrity. Illustrated with several black and white photographs. Green cloth binding with blindstamping, filled with black. Mild wear to the margins, and the spine has faded a bit. Clean text; 258 pages. Endpapers tanned, but text is bright, with much better paper quality than many Talbot productions of the era. There is a small stamp on the bottom of the Title Page - "Made in the Irish Free State" - that Quercus has not seen in other copies. Mildly rubbed and bumped, and with a small spot on the front cover. A better copy than often seen. No dustwrapper; in an archival plastic protector. Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. First Edition.
