On offer is a superb, early 19th Century manuscript relic of Irish literature, poetry, philosophy, genealogy and practical remedies being a 220+ page book self identified by Charles De Vesci of Templeogue, Co. Dublin. While unconfirmed we believe this De Vesci is related to the noted and ancient family of peers of Ireland. The book is filled with handwritten copies of famous quotations, poems and portions of literary works but also includes passages in Greek and some in code it seems. There are some essays, some genealogical information, notes on natural history, historical retellings and even a few recipes and the thoughts of the author. The earliest date we find is 1822 and later dates to 1870s. The book may have writings in different hands or the differing penmanship of an aging man but notwithstanding historians and researchers will find a treasure trove of 19th Century thought. The notebook is well used and handled condition with staining, wear and tear etc. but overall the 8 x 6 ½ inches is G+.
