Gem Selection Songs of Ireland.

8vo - 24.5 x 18.5 cm.; xx - 144 pp. Green cloth with gilt lettering and decoration on the front board. Third edition with no date given though known to be in the very early 1930's as the fourth edition is dated 1932. Seventy-two Irish songs with words, melody, and piano accompaniment with notes by Cronin, author of "Irish Footnotes to Shakespeare" and lecturer on national folk-music. All twelve full-page black and white illustrations by Carey are present. Mild shelf wear to the externals, the free end papers are browned, and the binding is a tad shaken though still quite sturdy. The interior is clean and the illustrations (printed on one side only with the obverse being blank) are very good. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted.
