Gill, Dublin 1924 - Pp.96. Conall Cearnach was a pseudonym for Rev. F. W. O'Connell. The name is taken from Irish mythology where Conall Cearnach was Warrior of the Ulster Cycle & protector of Ulster during the boyhood of Cuchulainn. The superbly illustrated dustjacket is not ascribed to any particular artist. It has a kind of art nouveau style and to a degree is reminiscent of Harry Kernoff - now there's a mixture! This copy is a presentation inscribed by Bedel Stafford (who was Professor of Greek at Trinity College Dublin) to James Buckley ( who may well have been a U.S. Senator?). There is an imprint of the d.j. illustration on the front cover of the book. I have not been able to ascertain for definite whether this imprint was originally present or not, but suspect that it has imprinted itself over time from the d.j. to the cover. Scarce, especially, with signature & d.j. . Size: 8vo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
