From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
De Ferings, Richard, Archbishop of Dublin, consecrated to that office in 1299. He is worthy of remembrance as having for a time succeeded in allaying the jealousy between the two Dublin cathedral bodies — St. Patrick's and Christ Church. It was arranged that both should be called cathedrals — Christ Church to have the precedence; the bodies of the Archbishops to be alternately buried in either church; their crosses, mitres, and rings to be deposited in Christ Church. He lived much abroad, and died on the Continent, 18th October 1306, on a return journey from Rome.

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.
