Ireland

Castle Blair. Shaw/Varian. Roberts Brothers, 1885/ 1878.

Castle Blair, a story of youthful days.

A large unruly family in an Irish castle and their run-ins with the estate agent, based on the author's own childhood. Well ahead of its time in the breadth of its setting, this book remained popular into the 20th century. Flora Shaw (1852 - 1929) became a very well known international journalist. A funny book that is still a delight to read..  (Note the review of Treasure Island, first appearing as a book in 1883, in the catalogue.)
