Parnell, Henry. A History of the Penal Laws Against the Irish Catholics, from the Treaty of Limerick to the Union. Dublin: Printed by H. Fitzpatrick, 1808. 226, xxii pp. Reprinted 2003 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2002044357. ISBN 1-58477-310-3. Cloth $80. * Reprint of first edition. Sir Henry Parnell [1776-1842], later Lord Congleton, was an Anglo-Irish parliamentarian and treasury official sympathetic to the plight of Irish Catholics. Enhanced by its extensive quotation of source records, this book traces the history of laws against "religious non-conformists" between 1689 and 1801. Though certainly partisan, it is valuable for Parnell's perspective and first-hand knowledge of several crucial events of the 1780s and '90s.
