From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Magraidain, Augustin, was canon in the monastery of All Saints' Island, in Lough Ree, at the end of the 14th century. He wrote an important work, Vitae Sanctorum Hiberniae, frequently referred to by Colgan, a copy of which is said to be preserved in the library of the Convent of St. Francis, Dublin. Magraidain also compiled a chronicle known as Annales Insulenses. He died in 1405, and was buried on the island (now a peninsula) where he had passed so much of his life.

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.
