Hardback.  First edition in original publisher’s pictorial dustjacket.  Housed in a protective mylar cover.  Introduction by The Earl of Wicklow. Limited to 600 copies.  Illustrated with 100 stunning colour plates by Flora H Mitchell.  Nostalgic and enchanting record of numerous streets and buildings that have now disappeared from the face of the city.  “The rosy patchwork quilts of our streets are gradually falling to the ground, and to walk in Dublin brings the realization that soon it must become just another city of concrete and glass, colourless and stereotyped. Already modern buildings rise elegantly above the many-hued kaleidoscope below, and as the familiar scenes must soon be swept away into limbo, let us take a walk-in fancy through our well-loved city. No need to leave our chair by the fire, we can weave ourselves a tapestry from the threads of yesterday and today, threads of what we have seen, have heard, have read, or even dreamed.” Scarce.

Condition: Fine in fine dustjacket.
