Jonathan's Travels: Swift and Ireland, by Joseph McMinn
Hardcover in Very Good Condition
An illustrated account of Jonathan Swift's (1667-1745) extensive and lifelong travels in Ireland from Antrim to Kerry and Galway to Wicklow. Quotes from his critical and detailed observations about people, culture, and landscape, are enhanced by a wide range of contemporary illustrations of the places and people he describes. Swift emerges not as the misanthropic recluse of his reputation, but an energetic and sociable writer utterly committed to the improvement and well-being of Ireland and the Irish.
