Beautiful collection of Irish prose and poetry! The book is well made and looks really good. It contains extensive writing by tons of Irish authors and ends with A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man - a famous novel by James Joyce that is the precursor to Ulysses.
A wonderful, lovely book! Leather-bound, beautiful gilded pages, very well put together and easy to the touch. Shall last you a long time! And you'll keep reading it for as long, because it's got no shortage of interesting content by important, influential authors and poets. A book you can pass on for generations and will stay endlessly charming.
