A propos de cet article

Beaux Arts Editions. This book has just a hint of shelf wear to the edges and a very small stain on the top edge that does not intrude on the margins. It is otherwise clean, bright and unmarked and has a tight binding. The dust jacket has a protective mylar cover. N° de réf. du libraire 040414

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The glorious legacy of art and literature of the Irish has thrived through centuries of foreign invasion, famine, and civil war. This magnificent anthology reveals the haunting history and expressive genius of the Irish people in words and images. The pathos, wit, and charm of the Irish are never more evident than in the tales of the Irish storyteller. 258 illustrations, 158 in color.

From Library Journal:

"Treasury" is an apt description of this beautiful volume. From the Confessions of St. Patrick to the speeches of O'Connell and Parnell; from "The Irishness of Billy the Kid" to Boston Irish politics; through ancient stones, tara brooches, stained glass windows, The Book of Kells , Killarney landscapes, and Aran fishermen, many voices speak in this ambitious cultural survey of Ireland and the Irish from prehistory to the 20th century. Selections are drawn from over 100 previously published sources: books, journals, documents, letters, diaries, speeches, folk songs, and poems, including many delightful character sketches and excerpts from the works of Shaw, Synge, Yeats, Swift, Goldsmith, Sean O'Casey, and Eugene O'Neill. Each selection is preceded by an editor's statement explaining its inclusion. Over 200 lavish illustrations, many from the National Gallery, complement the text nicely. For U.S. libraries, coverage includes the Irish experience in the United States (but not in other countries). This book successfully conveys the beauty and tragedy of Irish history and its rich legacy in art and literature. An effective introduction to the country, a visual joy, and delightful browsing, this is recommended for general collections.
