"What would have happened if the Irish had conquered and controlled a vast empire? Would they have been more humane rulers than the English? Using theCaribbean island of Montserrat as a case study of "Irish" imperialism, Don ald Akenson addresses these questions and provides a detailed history of the island during its first century as a European colony. Montserrat, although part of England's empire, was settled largely by the Irish and provides an opportunity to view the interaction of Irish emigrants with English imperialism in a situation where the Irish were not a small minority among whitesettlers. Within this context Akenson explores whether Irish imperialism o n Montserrat differed from English imperialism in other colonies. Akenson reveals that the Irish proved to be as effective and as unfeeling colonists as the English and the Scottish, despite the long history of oppression in Ireland. He debunks the myth of the "nice" slave holder and the view that indentured labour prevailed in the West Indies in the seventeenth century. He also shows that the long-held habit of ignoring ethnic strife within the white ruling classes in the West Indies is misconceived. If the Irish Ran the World provides interesting insights into whether ethnicity was central to the making of the colonial world and the usefulness of studies of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English imperialism in the Americas." -p.

15 ANDREWS, J.H. Maps in Those Days : Cartographic Methods Before 1850. First Edition in dustjacket.

ANDREWS, J.H. Maps in Those Days : Cartographic Methods Before 1850. (Dublin) : Four Courts Press, (2009). First Printing. Pp. (8),ix-xviii,1-549,(9).With dozens of black and white illustrations. 8vo, brown cloth with gilt l ettering to spine. "For some years the emphasis in map-historical literature has been either on traditional cartobibliography or on various cultural, social and ideological aspects of the mapping process. By contrast, few recent books have described what early cartographers actually did. 'Maps in those days' addresses this question. It deals with non-thematic maps of all kinds and of all parts of the world frome arliest times to the mid-nineteenth century, with particular reference to classical antiquity, the Renaissance and the Enlightenment in Europe and in countries of European settlement, especially Britain and Ireland. A brief introduction to map history is followed by a review of the scientific or pseudo-scientific presuppositions that cartographers have brought to their task. Later chapters deal wtih different phases of production -- sketching, instrumental suveying, plotting and projection. The contents of topographical, military, exploratory and maritime maps are distinguished, and consideration is given to methods of relief representation and to placenames. Production then gives way to presentationas maps are seen in the course of being copied, re-compiled, edited and em bellished. This book should interest researchers who use early maps as historical sources as well as connoisseurs of cartography for its own sake." - from the dustjacket. Very good in crisp dustjacket.

16 Annual Register BURKE, Edmund Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks Politics and Literaturefor the Years : 1758 to 1808
Dodsley and others, London, 1758, 
Annual Register . Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks / Politics and Literature for the Year. London
The Annual Register (originally subtitled "A View of the History, Politicks and Literature of the Year ... ") is a long-established reference work, written and published each year, which records and analyses the year’s major events, developments and trends throughout the world.
It was first written in 1758 under the editorship of Edmund Burke. This collection contains much on the wars and revolutions of the eighteenth century, as well as chronicling development in most spheres of endeavour.
"The Annual Register was created in 1758 by the publishers James and Robert Dodsley. On 24 April 1758 the Dodsley brothers signed a contract with Edmund Burke (1729–97) to write and edit the material for The Annual Register, which was conceived as an annual publication which would review the history, politics and literature of the day.
Born in Ireland, Burke had trained as a lawyer before abandoning this field and turning to writing. He was an up-and-coming member of the intelligentsia and had already written several notable works, published by Dodsley. According to his contract with Dodsley, Burke was paid £100 per annum as editor of The Annual Register. In its original form, The Annual Register comprised a long historical essay on the “History of the Present War” (the Seven Years' War 1756–63), a Chronology, which gave an account of interesting and noteworthy events in Britain over the previous year, and a collection of “State Papers”, a miscellany of primary source material which included official documents, speeches,letters and accounts. In his preface to the 1758 volume Burke noted the difficulties he had faced in writing the history section of the book. Taking the “broken and unconnected materials” and creating from them “one connected narrative” had been, he commented, “a work of more labour than may at first appear”. Nevertheless, his perseverance and skill as an historian meant that by the time of its publication the first volume of The Annual Register contained a unique, contemporaneous account of the war, analysing its origins and development with a perspective not readily available at the time in newspapers or magazines. As a result the book sold widely, with the first volume going through five editions in its first 10 years. Given the conventions of the day, within which journalism was seen as a disreputable profession for a gentleman, Burke was publicly reticent about his connection with The Annual Register. However, his biographers are in agreement that Burke wrote and edited the book single-handedly until 1765 when he entered Parliament. From this time Thomas English was closely involved in writing the book and is regarded by some authorities as having taken over the editorship from Burke in that year. Scholars are divided on the question of Burke’s association with the book thereafter, although many suggest that he continued to contribute to the history section and that he played a significant role in overseeing The Annual Register’s compilation until the 1790s, even though much of the editorial work by this stage was being done by others."

See William B. Todd's A Bibliography of Edmund Burke, (2nd ed., 1982) pp.45-68, for Burke’s involvement with the Annual Register.

"In her astonishing new novel, Margaret Atwood takes the reader back in time and into the life and mind of one of the mostenigmatic and notorious women of mid-nineteenth-century Canada. As the sto ry begins, one-time maid-of-all-work Grace Marks is serving a life sentencein the Kingston Penitentiary for her involvement in the vicious murder of her employer, the wealthy Thomas Kinnear, and of Nancy Montgomery, his housekeeper and mistress. Some believe Grace is innocent: after all, she was barely sixteen in 1843, at the time of the tragedy. Others think her evil or insane. Grace herself, having spent an interlude in the Lunatic Asylum in Toronto, claims now to have no memory of the murders. Dr. Simon Jordan is one of the up-and-coming men of his day in the burgeoning field of mental illness. Engaged by a group of Kingston 'reformers' and Spiritualists who seeka pardon for Grace, he listens to the account of her life -- her family's difficult passage from Ireland to Canada, then her time spent in service from the age of twelve. As he brings Grace closer and closer to the day she can't remember, he hears of the strained relationship between Kinnear and Nancy, and of the alarming behaviour of Grace's fellow-servant, James McDermott. Dr. Jordan is drawn to Grace, who manifests 'a composure a duchess would envy'; but he is also baffled by her. Still, it is the professional objective to wake that part of her mind which lies dormant. How will he do it, and what will he find? Was Grace a female fiend, a bloodthirsty femme fatale-- or a weak and unwilling victim of circumstances?" - from the dustjacket . Very good in unclipped dustjacket.
