Haunts of the Eagle. Man and Wild Nature in Donegal. With 12 Illustrations. London: Methuen, 1924. First Edition. Pp ix, 274, [8]. Publisher’s maroon cloth, title lettered in blind to upper cover & in gilt to spine. Covers lightly faded, otherwise a fine copy. Twelve photographic plates in the text. The author was an acquaintance of the Rev. James MacDevitt whose guide-book ‘The Donegal Highlands,’ (a detailed account of his travels throughout County Donegal in the latter half of the nineteenth century) was the inspiration of this work. Fox comments: “I have tramped to almost every place mentioned in it, and his accounts of folk-lore confirmed in their respective situations by the mouth of the peasantry.”
