The Ancient Books of Ireland


The Ancient Books of Ireland features beautifully illustrated excerpts from sixteen of the finest examples of early Irish literature, some dating back to over 600 AD. Many of the original manuscripts are housed at Trinity College Dublin, the National Museum of Ireland, and the British Museum and have never been brought into the public domain. In The Ancient Books of Ireland, Michael Slavin describes the stories and legends in these books and also traces how these 1,000-year-old manuscripts have survived Ireland's tumultuous history.
