Columcille the Scribe.
Dublin: Royal Irish Academy,, 2004. Single sheet of vellum (310 x 244 mm), tipped into original grey cloth portfolio under card window, colophon mounted under card window on verso, titles to front cover in black. Handwritten on vellum in red and black by Tim O'Niell. A fine copy. Signed limited issue, number 44 of 150 copies signed by the author and scribe on the foot of the vellum. Heaney translated this Irish poem, the earliest known version of which is a sixteenth-century copy held at the Bodleian Library, to celebrate his enrolment as a member of the Royal Irish Academy on the 9 June 1997, which he then presented to the Academy on vellum in the same manner as this issue. This edition was subsequently issued by the Royal Irish Academy to raise funds for Library acquisitions. An uncommon piece, traced on OCLC in nine institutions world-wide. From the collection of Dr. Peadar Mac Maghnais, a Dublin based doctor and acquaintance of Heaney's from their attendance of the Cumann Merriman Gaelic summer school.
