Cloth faded at spine and top edge, endpapers toned; a nice example of the First Edition of this classic Chesterton work. "Irish Impressions is an excellent work by the legendary G.K.Chesterton. Chesterton toured Ireland in 1918, a pivotal time in Irish history, to recruit volunteers for the English cause in World War One. While Chesterton was not much of a recruiter, he did produce this fun romp through Irish culture and history which presents a stark contrast between England and Ireland. This being Chesterton, there are great jokes, odd rants and haunting phrases. This book is a fine example of Chesterton at his best as he explores Irish politics, culture and religion. Fans of Chesterton and readers looking to understand more about Irish culture will enjoy the work." [Derby, Vine Voices]
