'Plaidy' is a plaid garment that was used as a blanket. The lyrics for this song were written by Hector MacNeill (1746-1818), and concern the the appeal that worldly goods have for certain women who, upon receiving an offer of marriage, are not unduly worried by the age of a suitor as long as he is wealthy. This is one of several songs by MacNeill that appear in 'The Scots Musical Museum'. The air that these song lyrics are sung to is 'Johnny McGill'.

Ireland
Ireland Where'er I am, whate'er I be, / Dear ERIN! I'll remember thee: / In the glad hour of holy mirth, / I'll praise the Lord of heaven and earth [...] Charlotte Elizabeth.
Printed by Howlett and Brimmer, 10, Frith Street, Soho, London [n.d., c.1830]
Rare letterpress printed in gold, sheet 155 x 115mm (6 x 4½").
Verses by Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna (née Browne, 1790-1846), writer and social reformer. Born in Norwich, Charlotte Elizabeth married an army officer and accompanied him to his estate in Ireland. As the DNB states, 'she developed a sincere affection for the Irish people but at the same time grew increasingly severe and evangelical in her religious convictions [...] her stay in Ireland had only intensified her antipathy towards the Catholic church, since she saw it as the means by which the Irish people were enslaved in ignorance and superstition'. Both Charlotte Elizabeth's love of Ireland and contempt for Catholicism are in evidence in this poem. In 1824 Charlotte Elizabeth separated from her first husband and returned to England, and left a legacy of many literary works engaging with social reform issues, which after a period of neglect have recently been rediscovered thanks to increasing interest in women's literature.

Engraved map. Sheet 395 x 520mm (15½ x 20½"). Fine impression with original binding folds, trimmed into printed border at top and bottom, losing title, as issued.
Plans of 16 Irish cities and towns: Drogheda, Dublin, Kilkenny, Waterford, Londonderry, Coleraine, Carrickfergus, Belfast, Kinsale, Cork, Duncannon, Charlemont Fort, Galway, Athlone and Limerick. The choice of towns refers to the actions of the Jacobite War in Ireland (1688-91): the plan of Drogheda shows the Battle of the Boyne (1690). Nicholas Tindal (1687-1774), at one time Chaplain to Greenwich Hospital, first published a translation of Frenchman Paul de Rapin's 'History of England' in 1727, running to thirteen volumes; in 1732 it was enlarged with his own notes and maps. This map was published in 'A summary of Mr Rapin de Thoyras's History of England, and Mr Tindal's Continuation, from the Invasion of Julius Caesar, to the End of the Reign of King George I.

By the Lords Justices and Council. W. Parsons. John Borlace.
Imprinted at Dublin, by the Society of Stationers. [n.d., c.1798.]
Letterpress broadside proclamation on watermarked laid paper, sheet 300 x 190mm. 11¾ x 7½". Tatty and chipped extremities, foxing and staining.
Reprint of a declaration first issued at Dublin on 29th October 1641, explanatory of the meaning of the term Irish Papists in a former proclamation concerning the rebellion. The Irish Rebellion of 1641 began as an attempted coup d'état by Irish Catholic gentry, but developed into inter communal violence between native Irish and English and Scottish Protestant settlers, starting a conflict known as the Irish Confederate Wars. The rising was sparked by Catholic fears of an impending invasion of Ireland by anti-Catholic forces of the English Long Parliament and the Scottish Covenanters. In turn, the rebels' suspected association with Charles I, exacerbated the situation leading up to, and ultimately resulting in, the start of the English Civil War. The Irish rebellion broke out in October 1641 and was followed by several months of violent chaos in Ireland. A fascinating broadside, with revealing insights into Irish politics and relations with Britain; published in the context of the Irish Rebellion of 1798, also known as the United Irishmen Rebellion, an uprising in 1798 lasting several months, against British rule.
