″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)

Christie, Luttrellstown Castle, Clonsilla, Co. Dublin, Ireland. Christie, Luttrellstown Castle, Clonsilla, Co. Dublin, Ireland. Volume 1: Objects of Art, Furniture, Pictures, Silver, Porcelain and Linen. London, Christie, Manson & Woods, 1983. 21 cm x 26 cm. 274 pages. Original Hardcover with dustjacket and protective Myla covering. Catalgue with price list from auction 26-28th Septmber 1983 loosely inserted. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear.

Luttrellstown Castle, dating from the early 15th century (c. 1420), is located in Clonsilla on the outskirts of Dublin, Ireland. It has been owned variously by the eponymous and notorious Luttrell family, by the bookseller Luke White and his descendants Baron Annaly, by the Guinness family, the Primwest Group, and since 2006, by JP McManus, John Magnier and Aidan Brooks. The castle has hosted visits by Queen Victoria in 1844 and 1900, and its media profile was raised when Victoria Adams married David Beckham there on 4 July 1999. Luttrellstown and its remaining 560-acre (2.3 km2) demesne currently form a 5-star resort, with a golf course, country club and unique location just outside the city boundaries of Dublin. The castle was started by Sir Geoffrey Luttrell, the 5th Lord Luttrell, who was born about 1385. Sir Thomas Luttrell was Chief Justice of the Irish Common Pleas, 1534-1554, and actively involved in the dissolution of the monasteries. He acquired the lands of St Mary’s Abbey at Coolmine. In 1927 the estate was bought by Ernest Guinness, as a wedding present for his daughter, Aileen Guinness, who married a cousin, Brinsley Sheridan Plunket. Aileen Plunket entertained on a grand scale. The castle became the site of hunt balls and other lavish social events. Her niece, Lady Caroline Blackwood wrote of growing up in that atmosphere in her book, Great Granny Webster. (Wikipedia).
