And also Containing a Brief Notice of the Education and Official Appointments of each Person, to which are added his Town and Country Addresses and Clubs. Dublin: Hodges, Foster and Figgis, 1878. First Edition. Pp xxviii, 486. Ex library copy, with ink stamps & with occasional label residue to endpapers. Rebound in brown quarter cloth boards, title in gilt to spine. A good copy.

This work provides a valuable companion to Griffith’s Valuation as it gives details of land ownership between the completion of Griffith’s Valuation and the redistribution of land under the Land Acts of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

In addition to the name of the landowner, the county in which land is held, the extent of land held and valuations thereon, Hussey also provides some interesting biographical information on a large proportion of the landowners noted, which is likely to have originated with the landowners themselves. This information is predominantly biographical in nature and includes government appointments, gentlemen’s clubs, marriage details, addresses, family seat and so on.
