From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Sullivan, Francis S., an eminent legal writer, was born in the south of Ireland early in the 18th century, and graduated in Trinity College, Dublin, where he was elected a fellow in 1738. He died about 1775. His principal works were, a Treatise on Feudal Law, and Lectures on the Constitution and Laws of England. Of the first, an eminent legal writer, quoted by Allibone, says: "We know of no work on feudal learning and the first principles of the English constitution, equal in merit or interest... Copious in detail, and exhibiting ably, among other topics, the influence of the feudal system upon the modern law of tenures."

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.
