By Gogarty, Oliver St.John

London: Constable & Co, 1939. The young Gogarty, medical student, amateur cyclist, philosopher and lover of good conversation, enjoyed a rowdy, exuberant lifestyle in Dublin in the early 1900s.

His enthusiasm, ready wit and keen observation capture the characters and manners of the city and of the period in an entertaining and highly readable story. . 1st UK Edition.. Hardcover. Very Good.

The Irish Game: A True Story of Crime and Art

By Hart, Matthew

London: Chatto & Windus, 2004. In the annals of art theft, no case has matched-for sheer criminal panachethe heist at Ireland's Russborough House in 1986. The Irish police knew right away that the mastermind was a seedy, rotund, and brazen Dublin gangster named Martin Cahill. Yet the great plunderincluding a Gainsborough, A Goya, two works by Rubens, and Vermeer's Lady Writing a Letter with Her Maidremained maddeningly at large for years. Cahill taunted the police with a string of other crimes, but in the end the paintings brought him low. The challenge of disposing of such famous works forced him to reach outside his familiar world into the international arena, and when he did, his pursuers were waiting. The movie-perfect sting that broke Cahill uncovered a maze of banking and drug-dealing connections that redefined the way police view art theft. As if that were not enough, the recovery of the Vermeerby then worth two hundred million dollarsled to a remarkable discovery about the way Vermeer achieved his photographic perspective.. Softcover. Near Fine.

The Gardens of Ireland

By George, Michael & Bowe, Patrick

Some are more intimate or specialized, for the moist and generally benign Irish climate allows a wide variety of styles and, in some places the cultivation of rare subtropical plants. The heritage gardens were created over generations, even centuries, while other gardens were made in recent years and are still tended by their creators. Over half are open to the public. Discussions of individual gardens are illuminated with insights gained from conversations with the gardeners about their particular experiences and concerns." 192p. illus [col] map index.
