An Historical Account of the Plantation of Ulster. At the Commencement of the Seventeenth Century, 1608-1620. Irish University Press, Shannon, 1970. Facsimile Edition. Pp [vi], ix, 622. 4to. A fine bright copy in publisher’s dust jacket.

Facsimile of the original edition of 1877 which describes the expropriation of the land of the native Irish after the Elizabethan conquest and its colonization by English and Scottish planters under James 1. With an introduction by John G Barry,

The contents of this monumental volume may perhaps best be described as a compilation drawn from state papers relating to the Plantation of Ulster, with detailed information about land settlements extracted and here reproduced. It is a feast of genealogical and historical material about the family settlements in Ulster during the reign of James VI. For each land grant, it lists those who took it up and the conditions which then prevailed, including the area in which they settled, etc.

The work remains one of the most important historical sources for any study of the Ulster Plantations.
