With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

"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. 
Price: 1000.00 USD
