Arensberg- Family and Community in Ireland Arensberg, Conrad M./ Kimball, Solon T. Family and Community in Ireland. Second Edition. Massachusetts, Harvard University Press, 1968. 24cm x 16cm. xxxiii, 417 (5) pages. 14 figures, 13 tables. Maps of Clare and Ennis. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket. Good condition with some stronger signs of external wear. Waterstain on edge. Endpaper signed by preowner. Interesting newspaper-clipping about Ballybough Jewish Cemetery included. Very rare publication.

Includes for Example: The Small Farmers/ Small Farm Economy/ Family Labor/ The Relations of Kindred/ The Kinship System/ Demography and Familism/ Family Transition at Marriage/ Dispersal and Emigration/ The Problem of the Aged/ The Old in the Community/ Familism and Sex/ Occupation and Status/ Markets and Community/ The Framework of Relationship/ The Town: Setting and People/ Shopkeepers and Shop Assistants/ Induction and Transformation/ Marriage and Family/ Mobility and Continuity/ Reciprocals of Family and Credit etc.

The authors gathered their material during the early 1930s, when they lived for two years among the people of County Clare, and managed to establish relations of mutual friendliness and confidence with their various hosts. Their study focuses on the distinctive culture of the small farmers of Eire. After a brief statistical review to establish the small farmer class and characterize the nature and scope of its economic activities, the treatment centers on the family groups dwelling on the land and following the rhythmic cycles of an ancient mode of life. The rural familial economy with its division of labor between the sexes and between age groupings, traditional patterns that govern the status and control the relations between family members, the system of kinship, the interplay of demographic and familial factors, the institution of match-making as it affects family continuity and the dispersal of members, the sex mores, the position and problems of the aged, and the social and economic bonds that weld families into the community: all are described and discerningly analyzed.

The present edition includes six new chapters on the behavior of Irish townsmen and the distinctions between rural and urban life, even as the two remain intimately linked. Once more, the clear, sympathetic presentation of material makes this volume decidedly important, not only to the social scientist and anthropologist, but also to the general reader who is interested in Ireland, in things Irish, or simply the nature of human relationships.

A Worthy Foundation: The Cathedral Church of St Canice, Kilkenny, 1285 – 1985. Portlaoise, The Dolmen Press, 1985. 21 cm x 28 cm. 103 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.

Includes the following chapters: Foreword / Introduction / The Anglo-Norman Diocese of Ossory by Adrian Empey / The Architecture of the Cathedral by Siuban Barry / The Medieval Tombs of St Canice’s by John Bradley.

″The course of history has impressed itself deeply on the architectural record of St Canice’s Cathedral since its foundation in Kilkenny seven centuries ago. Bishops have come and gone, noblemen and craftsmen have worshipped there and are remembered in its monuments. Its continued existence has been ensured by the devotion of the successive generatiosn of clergy and people who could not allow this graceful house of God to fall into decay. The occasion of the seventh centenary of St Canice’s completion seems appropriate for the preseent book which explores some aspects of the cathedral and the historical environment which helped to shape it.” (Publisher)
