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.

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)

Craig, Dublin 1660-1860. Craig, Maurice. Dublin 1660-1860. Dublin, Allen Figgis Ltd., 1980. 14.5 cm x 21 cm. XXI, 361 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with minor signs of external wear. Back-cover slightly dirty. Inscription by preowner.

Includes for example the following chapters: The Duke Returns / An Era of Expansion / The Municipality’s Part / Alarms and Excursions / Church and State / The Intellectuals / Art and Industry / Burgh and the Gardiners / Drapier and Dublin Society / The Age of Pearce and Cassels / Social Symptoms / Public Buildings of the Mid-Century / Piety and Learning / Estates and Academic Architecture / Ivory and some Great Houses / James Gandon: the Culmination / Two Revolutoins / Francis Johnston / The End of a Tradition / Appendix I: List of Streets and Buildings / Appendix II: Additional Notes on the Restoration of the Four Courts and the Custom House / Appendix III: Some Characteristics of the Dublin House / Appendix IV: Teh Architectural Succession / Appendix V: Graph of Dublin Population.

″Craig was at the forefront of the conservation movement, and his collection of photographs from the 1940s and 1950s shows an Ireland in which a horse-and-cart was still a key mode of transport. The pictures depict parts of Dublin that are no longer there, including photographs of Gardiner Street before many of its period buildings were demolished and on Longford Street, near Aungier Street in Dublin 8, the last pair of curved ‘Dutch-billy’ gabled buildings in Dublin which were demolished in about 1960.

“In Ireland at the time you expected a large rumpus about this or that, but there was no rumpus about things that were quietly taken down. Regarding Longford Street, I put my case to the official channels and was assured that they would look after them but they didn’t. In the meantime I had taken photographs of them and made a sketch survey.”

In 1952 he wrote Dublin 1660-1860, the book that began his recording of the city’s history and its important buildings. “I wrote the book under contract. The publishers did the normal thing that publishers do if you go to them with an idea. They say: ‘Young man if you write about the following subject we will publish it.’ They wanted a book on Dublin and I am sure they thought they would get the usual stuff about snuff boxes and hoop skirts. But I was interested in architecture and researched it by keeping my eyes open and going around on my feet.”” (Irish Times)
