A Compendium of Irish Biography by Alfred Webb, 1878
Alfred Webb's Compendium of Irish Biography contains many hundreds of biographies of eminent Irish men and women, and those associated with Ireland by office or through their writings. Sources for each biographical entry are provided.
A Dictionary of Irish Artists by Walter G. Strickland, 1913.
Over 1000 entries on Irish artists and artists connected with Ireland over the centuries. The work includes portraits and photographs of over one hundred artists, and catalogues the works of some. A valuable source of biographical information on painters, engravers, carvers, etchers, silhouettists, medallists, and more.
Charlotte Milligan Fox, sister of the poet Alice Milligan, was a founding member of the Irish Folk Song Society and an indefatigable field collector of Irish traditional music. Her singularly important work on Irish haprers is here presented for the twenty-first century reader. This edition of Annals offers a much greater number of illustrations than were included in the original 1911 publication, a full biographical introduction, an extensive bibliography of the writings of Milligan Fox and an appendix discussing the variant texts of Arthur O’Neills Memoirs.
