Signed and dated by the author in Gaelic on the half title page 'Douglas Hyde president 1942', with a translation of president in brackets. Douglas Hyde, the first President of Ireland,was fascinated by the folklore and songs of his native Roscommon, which prompted his lifelong interest in the Gaelic elements of Irish culture. In 1893 he founded with others the Gaelic League, to further the study of traditional Irish folklore and culture, which had considerable influence on future Irish nationalists such as Eamon de Valera and Michael Collins. Although Hyde was determined that the League should be non-political, P.H. Pearse, one of the leaders of the Easter Rising of 1916, said it was?the most revolutionary force that has ever come into Ireland? Back cover spotted, torn and repaired by the spine at head and tail.
