Book Overview

Richard Twiss' A Tour in Ireland in 1775, published in the following year, was one of the most controversial books of its period. It was based on his experiences of a five-month stay in the country. It enraged the Irish public through its unflattering representation of Ireland and its inhabitants. Since its publication it has been widely quoted as a contemporary source for Irish life, though generally cited in a negative context. Although a bestseller in its day it has not been reprinted since. This new edition includes the full collection of poems written in opposition to the book, together with contemporary illustrations of the sites and views visited by Twiss during his tour.
