by Sir James Ware
Published in 1705, this is the first complete version of this volume published in English. Ware was a trailblazing Irish scholar; translating, writing, editing and publishing numerous historical volumes. He was also a member of the King’s Privy Council in Ireland and staunch supporter of the Duke of Ormond. This publication combines several of Ware’s works in one place, his study of antiquities of Ireland, an account of the Prelates of Ireland, his annals of Ireland, and a piece on writers of Ireland. Ware’s work is amongst the earliest and most notable pieces of research on the history of Ireland.
