Tour in Connemara and the Martins of Ballinahinch by Maria Edgeworth 1st 1950
A limited edition of only 500 copies published by Constable and Company in 1950. This is a very good ++ copy. It has retained its original acetate jacket and its dust wrapper. Both are in nice condition. The acetate has a small tear to the rear. The jacket a thin strip of browning to the top edge. The book plate has a decorative bookplate from a previous owner and some foxing marks to the edges. Overall a very good ++ copy.
Tour in Connemara in 1833, was Maria Edgeworth's longest letter, and perhaps her best, but was not published in its entirety until this edition was put together in 1950.
