"To Hold as 'Twere", Plunkett, Mrs. Joseph (Grace Vandeleur Plunkett) (1885-1955)
1 Plunkett, Mrs. Joseph (Grace Vandeleur Plunkett) (1885-1955) "To Hold as 'Twere"
Dundalk Tempest Dundagan Press 1920 Wraps Good 
4to. 26 by 18.5 cm. Unpaginated, 20 leaves, with 17 being caricature plates, plus title with vignettes. Grace Plunkett, nee Gifford, was a well-known artist and caricaturist who married Joseph Plunkett, martyr of the Easter 1916 Uprising, hours before his execution. This 1920 collection includes a good number of caricatures of the Irish rebels and other notables, including de Valera, Lady Gregory, John MacCormick, Countess Markievicz, etc. The caricatures are sharp and merciless, and Plunkett was a rarity as a woman in the field of caricature at the time. Her sympathies were strongly for Sinn Fein and Irish independence, needless to say. The collection is uncommon in commerce. Heavy soiling of the cover. Moderate wear besides.
