O' Connor, Roger. Chronicles of Eri; Being the History of the Gaol Scist Iber: Or, the Irish People.  

Auction Date / Lot No.: 9 March 2014 / 5

Reserve: €150

  • 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."
