Vanishing Dublin - Mitchell, Flora H - 1966. [1203100]
Dublin: Allen Figgis 1966 - First edition.With an Introduction by the Earl of Wicklow. Large vo. pp 100. Beautifully and uniquely illustrated with 50 colour plates by Flora Mitchell. Fine in very good dustwrapper. "The Rosy patchwork quilts of our streets are gradually falling to the ground, and to walk in Dublin brings the realization that soon it must become just another city of concrete and glass, colourless and stereotyped. Already modern buildings rise elegantly above the many-hued kaleidoscope below, and as the familiar scens must soon be swept away into limbo, let us take a walk in fancy through our well-loved city. No need to leave our chair by the fire. We can weave ourselves a tapestry from the threads of yesterday and today, threads of what we have seen, have heard, have read, or even dreamed." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
