Memoirs Of The Lives And Characters Of The Illustrious Family Of The Boyles [Boyle, Family] Budgell, Eustace. Memoirs Of The Lives And Characters Of The Illustrious Family Of The Boyle’s. Containing Many Curious Pieces Of English History The Whole Extracted From Original Papers And Manuscripts Dublin, J.Esdall, 1754. 17,3 cm x 11 cm. 268 pages. Original Hardcover. Good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Spine damaged. Bookblock tight and clean. Needs some attention from a bookbinder. Ex-libris label on pastedown.

Eustace Budgell (19 August 1686 – 4 May 1737) was an English writer and politician.
Born in St Thomas near Exeter, Budgell was educated at Oxford University. His cousin, the writer Joseph Addison, took him to Ireland and got him appointed to a lucrative office. However, when he lampooned the Viceroy, he lost his position.
Budgell assisted Addison with his magazine, The Spectator, writing 37 numbers signed X. In these he imitates Addison’s style with some success. Between 1715 and 1727, he represented Mullingar in the Irish House of Commons.
Budgell, who was vain and vindictive, fell on evil days; he lost a fortune in the South Sea Bubble and was accused of forging the will of Dr Matthew Tindal at the expense of his nephew, Nicolas Tindal. He committed suicide by throwing himself out of a boat at London Bridge. His suicide note famously said: “What Cato did, and Addison approved, cannot be wrong.” (Wikipedia).

The book is a collection of memoirs that document the exploits of one of the most charismatic and influential families in 16th and 17th century Irish history.

″During the present century, ‘Ulster’ has come to signify the six counties of present-day Northern Ireland. Historic Ulster, however was one of the four provinces of Ireland embracing in addition the counties of Donegal, Cavan and Monaghan. This concise account traces the long and varied history of the region, from the pre-Norman Celtic period to the Anglo-Irish Agreement of 1986.

While Ulster through the centuries has in many ways developed in accordance with general Irish social, political and economic trends, it has also been subject to a number of special factors – Scots immigration, religious differences, the growth of its own distinctive industrial base – which have increasingly set it apart from the rest of the island. As a result, the history of the province is both intellectually problematic and politcally controversial.” (Publisher)

Brady, Up With The Times. Brady, Conor. Up With The Times. Dublin, Gill & Macmillan Ltd, 2005. Octavo. X, 286 pages with illustrations. Original hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.

Includes the following contents:– Editor as Express Train Driver / First Lessons / Earlier Times / ‘It Sure Beats Honest Work’ / In and Out at The Irish Times / The Wider World / The North Went On / The Economy, the Economy, the Economy / The Growing Times etc.

″Conor Brady edited “The Irish Times” for sixteen years between 1986 and 2002. It was a period of extraordinary change both in Ireland and in the wider world. This book reveals with intriguing detail how the paper both managed and made the news during two turbulent decades. It tells of encounters, not all friendly, with politicians, such as Charles Haughey, Dick Spring, Albert Reynolds (who sued the paper serially), John Hume, Mary Robinson, Bertie Ahern and many others. It describes the meticulous investigations – and sometimes the crises of decision making – that preceded pivotal stories, including Bishop Casey, the X Case, the Lenihan tapes, the fall of Albert Reynolds and others. It addresses the personal and corporate tensions at the heart of Ireland’s longest-established national newspaper, while providing close insights into the working of modern media with an honest recognition of the good and bad that is contemporary journalism. “The Irish Times” has been at the centre of public life in Ireland for almost 150 years. It has been lauded as the mouthpiece of the establishment and decried as subversive of public order and morality. It has always been controversial. Conor Brady likens the job of editor of a national newspaper to being the driver of an express train: ‘There is no time to dwell on the wonders of the landscape or the novelty of the events that have just passed by.’ His account of editing “The Irish Times” is a frank and engaging journey to the heart of a great Irish institution”.(Amazon).
