Xliv, 603 pp. Frontis plate of Curran. Green buckram with red and gilt cloth spine label is generally aged, bit grubby but not particularly rubbed, some wear at spine tips. Interior has new endpapers. Original yellow blank at the front is partially glued to the new endpaper and has a large hole, this yellow page is in turn glued to the half title which has been completely glued down to the frontis plate page (which appears to be missing part of its bottom corner) . Frontis foxed, paper generally lightly toned but otherwise clean, rear hinge cracking but holding. An acceptable copy of the scarce first edition of Davis's work on Curran. "The present edition is arranged chronologically, with a single exception. It contains 6 of Curan's bar speeches, and 33 of his parliamentary speeches, not in any former edition, and no pains have been spared to get the best reports. The illustrative matter may be thought too ample." ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 603 pages
