First printed by Zephyr books, Stockholm in 1946. 'This edition not to be introduced into the British Empire or the U.S.A.

Two penned previous owner s names to the half-title and some light toning to the upper text-block, otherwise in lovely condition.

Description:
The First printing published by C.S. O Fallamain, Dublin in 1928. Edited by An Seabhac [Padraig O Siochfhradh] and published in the Irish language. The BOOK is in Very Good condition with the original publisher's light red paper covered boards, with quarter maroon linen spine. Titles in black to spine. Some edge-wear and discolouration to the boards (see images). The corners are bumped but the binding remains firm. Internally clean and bright with just a few light underlinings. The book is protected in a loose Mylar archival cover. The author found wider fame when this title, translated as' Island Cross-Talk', and 'An tOileanach' (1929) translated as 'The Islandman', were issued in English, with the author anglicised as 'Thomas O'Crohan'. A classic journal of life on Great Blasket Island in the early twentieth century. Extremely elusive as the true first printing with COPAC listing only a handful in institutions.

No loss of colouring to the lettering on the spine. The rear panel and flaps are surprisingly clean for their age. Photo images have some glare due to the shine of the laminate.
