8vo - 23.5 x 15.5 cm.; xii - 910 pp. Burgundy cloth with a faux half-bound appearance and gilt lettering and decorations on the spine and gilt titling on the front board. Patterned end papers and the text block edges are marbled. The title page continued: ". . . compiled with annotations from Thomas Davis, Dr. McNevin, Dr. Madden and others. Embracing the most brilliant and stirring speeches of Edmund Burke, Henry Grattan, John Philpot Curran, Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Robert Emmett, Charles Phillips, Richard Lalor Shiel, Daniel O'Connell, Rev. Dr. Cahill, Thos. Francis Meagher, Thomas D'Arcy McGee, Archbishop McHale, Father Burke, Rev. Michael B. Buckley, Michael Davitt, A. M. Sullivan. With a preface by P. D. Nunan. Embellished with a full set of portraits engraved by Kilburn." Being Irish myself, I will say no more of the contents. There are 12 full page engraved portraits in all as issued. Previous owner's name written on the verso of the front free end paper and again on the verso of the second to last blank leaf. Otherwise very clean with a sound binding. The gilt letterig on the spine is a tad faded and the spine tips show mild shelf wear, more so at the tail of the spine. A quite handsome volume with a good presentation. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted.
