  • London: Phillips, 1822. First Edition. Large 8vo. Half Black & Original Cloth. Good / No Jacket. 2 vols in one. Pp, cclxii, 509, adverts. Frontispiece & 4 folding maps at front & vol 1, folding hand coloured frontispiece, map & plate at front of vol 2. Library no. on lower spine. Cloth stained & worn, but good overall.Roger O' Connor claimed to have translated the ancient Irish manuscripts in 1822, from Original Manuscripts in the Phoenician Dialect of the Scythian Language". The contents are alleged to have been written by a Scythian chief called Eolus which detail the early history of Ireland, treating the Milesian occupation as told in Irish mythology as literal history. The Chronicles of Eri are widely now considered to be a literary fraud. O' Connor never revealed the ancient manuscripts he claimed to have translated and most believe they never existed. The archaeologist R. A. Stewart Macalister reviewed the work in 1941, calling it a clear fraud and its contents "cloud-cuckoo", comparing it to the Book of Mormon."

  • ... with Thoughts on Civil society and Standing Armies. London: Boston, N. E. Printed. London: Reprinted for Edward and Charles Dilly, in the Poultry, 1774. First Edition. 8vo. Navy Blue Mo..

Scuffed along cover & spine edges and at spine ends. Boards showing at bottom corner of rear cover. Interesting association copy with bookplates of Thomas Addis Emmet, with his signature, and the Marquis of Lansdowne. Overall good. Thomas Addis Emmet (1764-1827) was the second son of Robert Emmet, physician to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and elder brother of Robert Emmet. He was an Irish American lawyer & politician, a member of the Irish revolutionary group The United Irishmen in the 1790s and Attorney General of New York State 1812-13. The Boston Port Bill was the British response to the Boston Tea Party of 1773. It was designed to secure Britain's jurisdiction over her American Dominions. The Port of Boston was effectively outlawed and blockaded by the Royal Navy. This resulted in economic & social hardship, leading to the American War of Independence (1775-1783). Josiah Quincy was a Boston patriot & lawyer. In this treatise he argued against the bill, but his efforts were unsuccessful. A scarce item with interesting associations.
