"First published in London in 1860 is the first edition of Sir John Bernard Burke's Vicissitudes of Families. Containing some 440 printed pages, this publication charts the rise and often fall of some of the most noted families of Europe and especially Ireland and the vicissitudes that caused these changes in circumstance ... Vicissitudes of Families details the vagaries of personality, events and history that led to the rise, but in most instances the fall of a number of celebrated families, some titled, some ennobled and some mere commoners. In his preface, Burke remarks that the vicissitudes experienced by what could be called the 'old aristocracy' could hardly, if ever, be separated from the national history of the country. In other cases the vicissitudes of families was often created by instability of mind or by the inheritance of an illegitimate issue or more commonly by lack of issue altogether. Burke illustrates these causes of vicissitude by choosing nineteen cases where families experienced huge changes in fortune. Numbered amongst these are the French Bonapartes, the bodice maker of Bristol and and the Lairds of Westquarter. However, it was to Ireland that much of Burke's attention was drawn with chapters on the exiled O'Donnells, the Clan MacCarthy, the Desmonds and the Kings of Meath, the O'Melaghlins."--Publisher description
