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.

The Gardens of Ireland

By George, Michael & Bowe, Patrick

New York: New York Graphic Society., 1986 "Some of the 21 gardens presented here are "great" gardens in a tradition similar to that of the English country house. 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. Large format, heavy volume. 1st US Ed... Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good, Slight Chips. Illus. by Photographs Mihael George.
