From Irish Pedigrees; or the Origin and Stem of the Irish Nation by John O'Hart
As the Phoené while in Egypt were familiar with the motives which actuated the Egyptians in building their Pillar-Towers along the Nile (similar to those in Babylon and other Eastern nations), it is considered that, from the same motives, the Phoenician leaders who settled in Ireland in those early times, did there erect those mysterious "Round Towers," concerning the origin of which there have been so many conflicting opinions; for, at that early period in the world's history, a colony of the Feiné, who are represented as good navigators, a race of giants, and "great builders in stone," discovered and settled in Ireland.
From a sad, comfortless childhood Giles Truelove developed into a reclusive and uncommunicative man whose sole passion was books. For so long they were the only meaning to his existence. But when fate eventually intervened to have the outside world intrude upon his life, he began to discover emotions that he never knew he had.
A story for the genuine booklover, penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St. John Featherstonehaugh.
