Condition: As New


Illustrated card covers, As New. First edition, pp xi, 419, maps, notes, bibliography, indices. The Hebridean island of Islay is well-known for its whisky, its wildlife and its association with the MacDonald Lords of the Isles.

This leads him to radically reassess several fundamental issues: the fate of Pictish identity and t... View more info

The history of Irish Travellers is not analogous to that of the 'tinker', a Europe-wide underworld fantasy created by sixteenth-century British and continental Rogue Literature that came to be seen as an Irish character alone as English became dominant in Ireland.
