From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913
His name appears as the engraver of two large plates, "Views of the Cathedrals of Lismore and Cloyne," from drawings by J. Blaymire (q.v.), in Vol. I of Harris's edition of "Ware's Works," published in Dublin in 1739; as well as of thirteen of the ornamental headings to chapters, with episcopal seals, etc. No other engravings by him have been met with, nor is anything known of him. He may, perhaps, have been the "Rev. Mr. John Haydon," whose name appears in the list of subscribers to the work.
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 touching story for the genuine booklover, written by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St John Featherstonehaugh.
