The Peerage of Ireland, or a Genealogical History of the Present Nobility…

Each volume of this four volume set includes copperplate engravings of the coats-of-arms of Irish noble families. There are 132 in all. These are in elegant and beautiful original tooled bindings, but unfortunately, every binding has either detached boards or the spines have split down the center. Since there are several different approaches to restoration in this case we are leaving that decision to the buyer and pricing them accordingly. The text blocks are tight and near fine and there is an interesting period owner’s inscription.
