I am very fond of this magazine, of which I have maybe five issues . I got them all at the same time and never saw another since! The yellow cover is very clean, as are the pages and page edges with no names or writing. There's a color plate at frontis and maps within the text. Lengthy articles include "Irish Soldiers and Plotters in Williamite England" (16 pages); and "Major General Oliver Harty in Brittany 1799-1800" (29 pages). If you would like to know about the other issues send an email, or phone, and I'll give you the details. View more info

I haven't see one of these since I was a kid. My Irish grandparents used to buy them, but it was a very mysterious thing. Not only did the ticket itself look scary to me, but the whole thing was shrouded in mystery. Now I know why -- they were illegal in the U.S.!The Irish Sweepstake was not like today's lottery where numbers are drawn. Each ticket was assigned to a racehorse, so it was really a form of gambling. By the 60s the U.S. lightened up on it, but sales were already declining by then -- helped along by a report via Fortune magazine that the original motive to support Irish hospitals h...

This is one of those booklets in hard cover -- only 48 pages, but all tricked out with paper over boards and a glassine jacket. The publisher referred to it as a miniature book, but it is not. The only miniature thing about it is the number of pages. The book itself measures 5"x8". It's very clean and nice and even the glassine jacket is in nice condition -- these usually bite the dust.The Roadale Press worked in both England and Pennsylvania, but this book came from England replete with British price on wrapper.

Fun cover just in time for Mardi Gras! The magazine shows darkening around the edges -- dust stain I think, as I had no luck removing it. There's also a small piece of tape to back cover, the handiwork of a previous owner. The spine had a tear to the bottom, but I stopped it with archival tape which does not brown and is very subtle. The magazine offers fiction from three big names: Edna Ferber (Our Very Best People); Adela Rogers St.Johns (Kitty Shinn's Husband); and W. Somerset Maugham (The Luncheon."

Magic is timeless even though we know the magician is the keeper of tricks and secrets. So these consecutive issues of Genii -- March and April, 1961 -- are great fun. Both are in very good clean, tightly bound condition. Only glitch is a small repaired tear to lower front corner near spine on the April issue. The March issue is especially interesting, as it was mostly written by Herbert Lambert, a magician from Dublin, Ireland, who is pictured on the cover. Features magic tricks from Ireland, plus a rare magical bookplate and litho from Ireland with explanations of their significance. The Apr... View more info

Condition: Fien condition


This booklet is crisp and clean enough to be called new. VERY nice. It does not contain the musical score -- it's the words set to the music which were based on the author's novel "The Invasion", and before that on the legend of the romance between an Objibway chief's daughter and an Irish trader, set against the backdrop of the Great Lakes area. A special page pasted in at front shows that the operetta/oratorio was performed in 1987 by the Cleveland Chamber Symphony. Booklet measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 62 pages. The composer is Bain Murray. View more info
