It measures 4-1/2"x7" and the cover art was rendered by Fergus O'Ryan. The booklet was likely made for the tourist trade as many of the ads are for hotels, bars, and various travel aids.

Blarney Castle The Story of A Legend (1989), Pettit, Dr. Sean
26 Pettit, Dr. Sean Blarney Castle The Story of A Legend (1989)
County Cork, Ireland Blarney Castle Estate 1989 Card cover Fine condition 
This is a pretty little souvenir and booklet sold to travelers who wait in line to kiss the Blarney Stone and roam the beauty of the magical grounds and also its manor house. I was there once, but I skipped the Stone because my Irish grandfather always told me I will never need to do it. The idea is to get "the gift of gab", but I was born with THAT and haven't stopped talking yet! The booklet is charming with 51 pages measuring a diminutive 4"x7". Much information in a little package.

Treasures of Early Irish Art 1500-B.C. to 1500 A.D. Plus Commentary Booklet (1978), Professor Franch Mitchell
27 Professor Franch Mitchell Treasures of Early Irish Art 1500-B.C. to 1500 A.D. Plus Commentary Booklet (1978)
Washington D.C. Metropolitan Museum of Art 1978 0870991647 / 9780870991646 Second printing Car cover Vary Good condition 
The main exhibition book is lacking in nothing. Gorgeous works of art make every page an immersion in color and design.There is much text on the pages but inside this catalog there's a separate commentary on it too.The exhibition was taken "across the pond" to the United States, though none of these major treasures ever made the trip before -- for good reason. Imagine sending the the Book of Kells, the Ardagh Chalice and the great stone cross from Dysert O'Dea. But traveled they did and returned safely to Ireland. The exhibition catalog measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 221 pages, pus the extra booklet which covers in 14 counted pages the various eras from prehistoric gold to late medieval Ireland.

The Irish at Home and Abroad (Two Issues Irish Genealogy, 1998), Radford, Dwight A. (editor)
28 Radford, Dwight A. (editor) The Irish at Home and Abroad (Two Issues Irish Genealogy, 1998)
Salt Lake City, Utah The Irish At Home and Abroad 1998 Volume 4, Number 3; Volume 5, No.2. soft cover Very good condition 
I wish I had more of these, but they were mixed in with a box of Ohio genealogy magazines. This magazine is a quarterly and what we have here is the third quarter issue of 1997 and the second quarter of 1998. The 1997 issue offers these articles: Richard Griffith and His Valuations of Ireland; Registration of Births, Marriages, and Deaths in Canada; Irish Emigrant Passenger List; Researching Catholic Nuns, Brothers and Priests in the U.S. For Place Origin; County Kilkenny; Irish Immigration to Argentina; Heritage Centres in Ireland; and Early Scots-Irish Research in Tennessee (1768-1840). The 1998 issue is a great follow-up to the other because the main article is "Is There More In Griffith's Valuation Than Just Names?". Other topics are Priests, Nuns and Brothers in Ireland; Irish Immigrants Among Three Minority Religions; County Clare; Irish Records of Australian Convicts; What To Do if Only the County in Ireland is Known; and Internet Resources for Irish Research. Both magazines are clean and nice.

The Haw Lantern: Poems by Seamus Heaney, 1987 1st Edition, Seamus Heaney
30 Seamus Heaney The Haw Lantern: Poems by Seamus Heaney, 1987 1st Edition
New York Farrar Straus Giroux 1987 First American Edition Hard cover Very good condition Very good dustjacket 
I love the Irish poets and buy them every time I see them. This one, Seamus Heaney, won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1995. Heaney lived predomninately in Belfast, Nothern Ireland and then later in Dublin. He died in 2013 at the age of 74. The book measures 5-3/4" x 8-1/2" with 51 pages. There are no names or writing and no bumps to boards. The only fault is a small crease to the bottom of the spine and a bit of light toning to the top back of the jacket. The book looks wonderful in a brand new mylar cover.

Peter Newell American Original: Artist, Illustrator, Humorist 1989, Walker, Gay
32 Walker, Gay Peter Newell American Original: Artist, Illustrator, Humorist 1989
Yale University Library 1989 card cover Very Good 
I have to admit that I had not heard of Peter Newell, but the design and graphic on this attractive exhibition catalog called out to me(in an Irish brogue!). The catalog opens at the front to reveal more art which is explained in a cute, funny verse on the back cover. The catalog itself measures 5-1/2"x9" closed and has 26 pristine pages. It accompanied an exhibit at Yale's Sterling Memorial Library from February through May, 1989. Included are a brief essay about Newell followed by lists of his body of work including his books, books illustrated for others, illustrations done for magazine articles, cartoons in magazines, and miscellanea.
