"Gerald of Wales was a member of one of the leading Norman families involved in the invasion of Ireland. He first visited it in 1183 and later returned in the entourage of Henry II. His Topographia Hiberniae is an account of Ireland and is early history as perceived by a Norman in 1185. Although the Irish have found its text infuriating, they also have to admit it is an important source for what is known of Ireland during the whole of the Middle Ages"--Back cover

15 editions published between 1846 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerald of Wales was an ecclesiastic, a servant and critic of the Angevin kings, and a prolific and vitriolic writer. Born in Pembrokeshire of mixed Norman and Welsh blood in the middle years of the twelfth century, he was appointed archdeacon of Brecon in 1175, but that was the highest office he attained, despite his indefatigable efforts in the years 1198-1203 to become not merely bishop, but archbishop, of St Davids. His death was reported in 1223. His Instruction for a Ruler (De principis instructione) is of interest for three main reasons: it provides a detailed and violently partisan account of the last days of Henry II of England; it is full of miscellaneous but valuable stories and anecdotes (such as the account of the discovery of the tomb of Arthur and Guinevere, and the legend of the destruction of the Picts); and it is a monument to the literary culture of a highly educated writer at the heart of the twelfth-century Renaissance."--
