The Life and Death of Lord Edward Fitzgerald. London: Longman, Rees, & c, 1831. Second Edition. Two Volumes. Pp (1) xi, 307; (2) , 305. With frontispiece portrait to vol 1, Vol 2 lacks title-page. Bound in recent quarter goat, cloth boards, title stamped in gilt to spines. A good set. Fitzgerald (1763-1798) was member of the Protestant Ascendancy. He had been wounded in the American Revolution, explored Canada, and influenced by the French Revolution, eventually joined the United Irishmen. Arrested, again wounded, he died (supposedly from lack of care) in Newgate Prison. Of such a life are romantic legends made, and Moore is sympathetic to that ideal.
