″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)

Gille of Limerick / Fleming, Gille of Limerick (c.1070 - 1145 Gille of Limerick / Fleming, John. Gille of Limerick (c.1070 – 1145): Architect of a Medieval Church. Dublin, Four Courts Press, 2001. 16 cm x 24 cm. 176 pages. Original hardcover with original dustjacket in protective Mylar. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.

Includes for example the following essays: The early Irish Church / Twelfth-century reform / Gille’s origins / Responsibility for pastoral care / The place for contemplation / The role of the laity / The hierarchs / The ecclesiastical grades / Bishop of Limerick / Friend of Anselm / Gille retrieved / The writings and their origins / The printed sources for the writings of Gille etc.

″Generally, little is known about Gille, bishop of Limerick from 1106 until 1138. The Annalists have tended to ignore him and history has not focussed attention on him either. Scholars accept that he was an important figure in the reformation of the Irish Church during the twelfth century but to date they have not explored his contribution to the early medieval Church in Ireland. // This work is a first attempt to focus attention on Gille. It tries to establish the foundation on which a genuine appreciation of the contribution which he made to the Ireland of the twelfth century can be laid. It provides the future historian with a critical edition of his writings and a translation of these into English. It also analyses, briefly, the background of his treatise and the contribution which he made not only to the formation of the medieval Church but also to specific areas of interest to the Church, the role of the laity, the place of women etc.” (Publisher)
