Title: The Student's Manual of Irish History
Author: M. F. Cusack
Publisher: Longmans, Green and Co., London
Printing Year: 1870

Condition/Details: Rebound in marbled boards with three quarter brown cloth, this antique volume is a rare early history of Ireland for English readers, beginning with a presentation of materials for the ancient history of the country and the origin of the Irish Celts to the legislative union between Great Britain and Ireland in 1798-1800. The author stresses the originality and importance of this work in his preface: "...it seems necessary to call attention to the neglect with which Irish history has hitherto been treated, and to the probable cause of neglect. Englishmen have generally been unwilling to press a study on their children which could afford little else than a matter of constant regret and explanation. In Ireland, it is said by a recent lecturer, that indifference or dislike to a painful subject has caused similar avoidance of this department of history. It is true that the past cannot be effaced, but past evils may be remedies by present care; and it is always, under all circumstances, a matter of imperative necessity that we should know the history of the past, whatever that history may have been."

This is an ex-library volume, with a handwritten title on the spine, a bookplate inside of the front board, handwriting on the title page and a pocket and sheet adhered to both the inside of the rear board and last page of advertisements.
