[Ireland] Edward Ledwich. THE ANTIQUITIES OF IRELAND.

(Plates XXVI, XXVIII, and XXX misnumbered “XXVIII,” “XXX,” and “XXXII.” Page numbers on plate list are not necessarily accurate.) Sm. folio. [18], 526, [12] pp. Ledwich wrote the Antiquities of Ireland not long after Thomas Wyse, Charles O'Connor and other Catholic historians had put a Catholic spin on Ireland's Celtic and Catholic past. Ledwich's work can be viewed as Protestant revisionism.
