The Irish department leans heavily towards late nineteenth and twentieth century literary first editions, including signed limited editions, association copies and manuscripts.
We are very enthusiastic about the work of Samuel Beckett, Seamus Heaney, James Joyce, Patrick Kavanagh, Paul Muldoon, Flann O'Brien, Oscar Wilde and W.B. Yeats. We are also particularly adept at the dispersal of libraries, as well as literary archives and are able to provide valuations for sale or insurance.
