Abstract:

This book aims to reconstruct part of Dublin's past from source material of an unconventional and unfamiliar sort: accounts of lawsuits generated by the evolving fortunes of the city and surrounding district. To enable the significance of these lawsuits to be better understood and to lend coherence to the narrative as a whole, additional explanatory material has been incorporated, drawn principally from general and specialist local histories. But the choice of focus has been dictated by the presence of an inventory of lawsuits with a topographical bias. In his preface, Professor Osborough remarks that he is unaware of the existence of any equivalent published exercise carried out for any other large city. Complete with a detailed index and tables of cases and statutes, this volume is enhanced by over 100 illustrations in black and white.
