BINDINGS. - Thomas MOORE, William Cusack SMITH and others (contributors)].

Anthologia Hibernica: or Monthly Collections of Science, Belles-Lettres, and History. Illustrated with beautiful engravings. Dublin: Printed for Richard Edward Mercier & Co., January 1793 - December 1794. 4 volumes, includes subscribers’ lists at the front of each volume. Octavo (8 7/8 x 5ins; 226 x 127mm). 59 engraved plates (including 2 folding maps, 2 hand-coloured plates and 1 plate not included in the plate lists [as called for]), various illustrations. (Some toning, occasional light offsetting, generally very clean). Contemporary marbled calf, the flat spines divided into six unequal compartments by double gilt fillets, red morocco labels in the second compartments, green morocco in the fourth.

Provenance: Charles William Bury (?), (1764-1835, a subscriber, later 1st Earl of Charleville FRS, FSA, a subscriber, inserted slip "Wm. Bury")

A beautiful set, in a binding that is probably Irish - includes Thomas Moore's first published work: : vol. II, p. 299; vol. III, pp. 137, 223 and 461 (Moore was 'barely 15' at the time). This ambitious publication was wide-ranging if short-lived. It includes news, reviews, original poetry, historical articles, science, natural history and even a truncated attempt to publish a revised third (?) edition of William Cusack Smith's "Rights of citizens, being an examination of Mr. Paine's principles, touching government" (first published in 1791).

NCBEL, II:1379. Bradshaw, 2729. Crane & Kaye, 17. Ward, W.S. Index of serials, p. 6
