With De Valera In America. Dublin: Fitzpatrick, 1932. Pp xiv, 284. Frontispiece portrait of the author. Cloth boards, title lettered in blind to upper cover and spine, cloth faded and light stained, contents in good condition. The full story of work attempted and achieved in the US from 1917 until the Truce in 1921, by the Emissaries from Ireland. Because of de Valera’s imprisonment and sojourn in the U.S., he was away from Ireland for most of the Irish War of Independence, which ended with a truce on July 11, 1921. During his time in the U.S., the president spoke to massive crowds, raised millions of dollars, and made enemies with two key figures in the Irish-American republican movement, John Devoy and Daniel Cohalan. De Valera founded the American Association for Recognition of the Irish Republic as a vehicle to funnel financial support from Americans through his hands. This move angered Devoy, who had long been recognized as the voice of the Irish revolution in America.
