Edited with notices of his life and times by W. J. Fitzpatrick, F.S.A. Rather scarce collection of letters from this preeminent Irish politician of the 19th century. O'Connell is perhaps best remembered as a proponent of Catholic Emancipation, though he was arguably the most prominent liberal in Irish politics during the first half of the century. 538pp. and 464pp. with index.
