MATHEW, Frank, and Francis S. Walker [artist]. Ireland. London, A & C Black, [1912].

8vo. Original illustrated green cloth, top edge gilt; pp. xix, 212, 79 colour plates with captioned tissue guards; two corners with little bumps, otherwise near-fine.
First published in May 1905, reprinted in 1912, as the imprint on title-verso states. This does not confirm the first printing described by the collector and bibliographer Inman, who lists a May 1906 printing, and reprints, including the present one. In the Prologue are references to the Irish independence movement. This is one of the rarer A & C Black titles we encountered.
Inman 42.
