History of the insurrection of the County of Wexford, A.D. 1798; including an account of transactions preceding that event, with an appendix.
Dublin: Printed for the author, by John Stockdale 8vo. [4] ff., xliv, 304, xxxvi, [2], 20 pp., fold. map, fold. table.. 1803 Hay (1761?–1826) of County Wexford, Ireland, was the brother of John Hay, one of the leaders of the 1798 United Irishmen Rebellion against English rule, and an eye-witness to the events. This first edition contains an introduction that is not found in all of the reprints and some of the later editions also lack either the folding map and/or the appendix. The folding table is the "Enumeration plan" (for enumerating the population of Ireland). The appendix (20 pages with its own signatures) is entitled "Authentic detail of the extravagant and inconsistent conduct of Sir Richard Musgrave, baronet; with a full refutation of his slander against 'Edward Hay'." Musgrave was an Irish Protestant from Waterford, a polemicist, and ardent anti-Catholic. Provenance: 20th-century signature of Francis Massey O'Brien and his bookplates (Portland, Maine), bibliophile and bookseller. Publisher's half brown calf with blue-green paper boards. Front joint open; binding scuffed. Map with repair from rear. Scattered foxing.
