In this online version of Walter Strickland's seminal work on Irish artists the additions and corrections that were listed separately in the book have been incorporated into their appropriate entries. The illustrations from the plates in the original book have also been placed in the appropriate online pages so that, for example, the images of James Barry will appear in the entry for that artist. It was thought unnecessary to reproduce the extensive index in the physical book as the online version has full search functionality.
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.
