&. & C. BLACK - WALKER, Francis S. (author). Frank MATHEW (illustrator). Ireland. London; Adam & Charles Black. 1905.
Large 8vo., publisher's dark green pictorial cloth strikingly panelled and blocked with a repeating shamrock design in darker green and black with a gilded harp vignette to upper board, lettered gilt, top edges gilt; pp. xix + [iii], -212 + , publisher's list; with 70 fine coloured plates after watercolours by Frank Mathew, all with captioned guards; a remarkably good copy with a couple of tiny slightly paler marks to spine, mild bruising to spine ends, a tiny scuff to cloth on upper board (8mm), one slight knock to top forecorner of upper cover, and an barely notcieable 8mm split to cloth at lower joint; internally clean and crisp throughout, with a small ownership inscription to front free endpaper; an elusive title in the series in first edition.
