The History of Ireland from Its Union with Great Britain, in January 1801, to October 1810, Volume 2
This work takes Irish history from the Act of Union in 1801 through the next ten years of its volatile history and relationship with England. As a contemporary account saturated with documentary evidence by an astute Catholic political historian it is unsurprising that it too caused a scandal. Upon refusing to pay a libel charge, Plowden fled to France where he ended his days at the Scots College in Paris. Plowden's History is an essential resource for understanding the making of Ireland.
--both works available together for the first time since original publication
