1- Very Rare Irish Rebels in English Prisons, A Record of Prison Life. 1882. Hardcover. Author's Autographed Edition, signed by Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa. Original blind-stamped dark green cloth, all of which recount the atrocities experienced during his imprisonment in England. During the 1880's he helped orchestrate a controversial dynamite bombing campaign in England. He understandably received extraordinary attention from the English press. For years they campaigned for his arrest and punishment. The mere mention of the name Rossa in the English mindset engendered immense fear, possibly more than his violent activities deserved. Nevertheless there is no doubt that Rossa was an extreme radical. O'Donovan Rossa died in 1915 in a Staten Island hospital. His widow agreed to send his body back to Ireland for burial. More than 10,000 people attended his funeral. 2- Prose writings of Thomas Davis. Edited, with an introd., by T. W. Rolleston, 1890. 3- . 1916 The Irish Orators, A History of Ireland's Fight for Freedom, by Claude G. Bowers. All have minor wear, loose spines. PROVENANCE: A Private Charleston SC Estate.
