Haliday Pamphlet Collection

Royal Irish Academy | HP1-HP2209 |

Collection of pamphlets covering the history, literature and antiquities of Ireland. With imprints covering the period 1682 to 1859, and including c.18,000 items bound in 2209 volumes, the pamphlets are arranged in chronological order, and thematically within this framework. The collection includes many items which are greater than the standard pamphlet length. Themes include major historical events, theological discourse, political debates and events, education, agriculture, economics, the building of railways, canals etc., prose, poetry and drama, and a wide range of miscellaneous publications, including annual reports. The collection includes non-Irish imprints and while mainly Irish in focus, it is not exclusively so.
