lxxxviii, 459 pages; Contents clean and tight in original green cloth binding with bright gilt lettering at spine. Free endpapers are detached and chipped along edges; cloth is worn at spine ends (especially tail) and rubbed at corners. Faint former owner's stamp on title. John O'Donovan (Irish: Seán Ó Donnabháin, 1806 – 1861), from County Kilkenny and educated at Hunt's Academy, Waterford, was one of Ireland's greatest Gaelic scholars, historians and genealogists. In his early career worked O'Donovan for antiquarian James Hardiman researching state papers and traditional sources; he taught Irish to Thomas Larcom for a short period in 1828; and he worked for Myles John O'Reilly, a collector of Irish manuscripts. After much other archival work, O'Donovan became a professor of Celtic Languages at Queen's University, and was called to the Bar in 1847. On the recommendation of Grimm, he was elected a corresponding member of the Royal Academy Berlin in 1856. He published much on his observations and researches into the folklore and antiquities of Ireland, and his letters to historian John Cunningham are a wonderful resource. Two plates illustrating versions of the ancient Irish alphabets from the Book of Kells, The Book of Leacan, the Liber Hymnorum, and other ancient texts. N° de ref. de la librería 39508
