From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Dicuil the Geographer, an Irish writer who flourished in the 9th century. His De Mensura Orbis Terrae was written in 825, and published for the first time at Paris in 1807, by M. Walckenaer, from the MS. in the Imperial Library. Another edition, with critical notes, by M. Letronne, appeared in 1814, and one by Gustavus Parthey at Berlin in 1870. He also wrote De Decem Questionibus Artis Grammaticae. There is a full account of Dicuil and of these works in a paper by Rev. William Reeves, D.D., in the Irish Ecclesiastical Journal, October 1848.

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.
