Dublin: The Story of a City

 
9781847179227: Dublin: The Story of a City

Dublin has taken many forms over the last millennium: first a Scandinavian settlement, linked by kinship to Norway; then a medieval town that formed part of a Norman sphere of influence across Western Europe. By the eighteenth century, it was a 'polite' city of the British Empire, before gaining independence and developing into a bustling, modern European capital. Merging archaeology with art, Stephen Conlin's beautifully crafted views recreate Dublin's most famous areas and buildings at key times in their development, such as Wood Quay in 1254, Parliament House circa 1760, O'Connell Street in 1945, and the Grand Canal Basin today. This wonderful imagery is complemented and enhanced by the vivid text of Peter Harbison, which moves through time to provide an entertaining history of Dublin, its people and its landmarks. Special limited edition with slipcase and unique cover design.

About the Author:

Stephen Conlin was born in County Armagh, studied in Dublin and Belfast, and now divides his time between England and the Czech Republic. An early interest in historic buildings led to exhibitions and illustration work, including several postage stamp issues for An Post. He regularly carries out commissions for conservation bodies such as the National Trust in the UK, Historic Environment Scotland, English Heritage and Country Life magazine. His work is in the Royal Collection and public collections. He has been involved in fundraising for the Frauenkirche in Dresden, numerous Czech historic sites, and for Armagh Public Library. Dr Peter Harbison is honorary academic editor of the Royal Irish Academy, Professor of Archaeology at the Royal Hibernian Academy, and an honorary fellow of Trinity College, Dublin. He studied archaeology at UCD and the University of Marburg and was editor of Ireland of the Welcomes for nine years. He is the author of some thirty-five books on Irish archaeology and art, published on both sides of the Atlantic, including Guide to National and Historic Monuments of Ireland, Cooper's Ireland, The High Crosses of Ireland, and Pre-Christian Ireland.
