A well-researched, highly-respected local history of Corkaguiny, the northernmost major peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. It is "the result of a number of visits, beginning in 1925," the author's intention being "to make the beautiful, romantic and storied barony of Corkaguiny -- which is practically co-terminious with Dingle peninsula -- with its wealth of legend, rich antiquarian treasures, stretching back, not only to early Christian but to pagan times, its great historical episodes, and intensely tragic events, more familiar to our people." Original green cloth w/gilt spine lettering, preface, publishers' note, contents, bibliography, errata, list of illustrations, 656 pages (including notes on the text, index), illustrated w/27 photographic plates (including frontispiece of author and folding map of Corkaguiny). Bumped/lightly worn corners/spine ends, previous owner's signature to front end paper, a different previous owner's signature to half-title, lightly soiled edges, a bit of foxing to end papers, light general wear. A nice copy of a quite scarce title.
