A Guide to Irish Fiction, 1650-1900

Most Irish fiction published between 1650 and 1900 has fallen into virtual oblivion. Research by the Loebers for their Guide to Irish Fiction has led to the identification of hundreds of unknown or forgotten Irish authors and their works, and provides thousands of summaries of novels and anthologies. Carefully documented, A Guide to Irish Fiction presents details of the publication of Irish fiction in Ireland, England, and North America, as well as several other European countries. Written for literary scholars and students and for anyone interested in Ireland and its literature, this book constitutes an essential tool for historians, librarians, collectors of Irish books, and antiquarian booksellers.
Rolf Loeber and Magda Loeber, University of Pittsburg, have extensively published on Irish history and literature and are known for their pioneering research. Anne M. Burnham is an independent researcher at Pittsburgh.

This book is expensive retailing at €81 on Four Courts Press website
