Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1869 edition. Excerpt: ... Irish language on the lips of a million of people who speak it, may be attributed mainly to two causes--emigration, and the indifference of its own race.

An exact typographical reproduction of the original, in all its quaint ness of ancient characters and antiquity of English, preceded by the apology of the author (Stafford) and an essay on the cultus of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Edited by the Rev. Orby Shipley.
