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.

"Beautiful, different and touching. Short, sweet and lovely. Made me cry. You sense that this is a true story veiled in the guise of fiction as are all the best stories."
Although ostensibly set in England, this story was penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St John Featherstonehaugh.
