Irish Book Lover

(1909-1957), a quarterly review of Irish literature and bibliography founded by John S. Crone. Its thirty-two volumes include author-itative bibliographies relating to Irish printing and publication at home and abroad, studies, biographies, notes and queries, and obituaries of Irish writers, as well as comprehensive reviewing of contemporary works, and original poetry. The editorial policy, which showed a gentle partiality to Ulster, was non-militantly nationalist and increasingly pro-Gaelic. Prominent contributors included David J. O’Donoghue, Francis J. Bigger, Ernest R. McClintock Dix, Rev. Stephen Brown, Seamus Ua Casaide (editor, 1924), and Colm O’Lochlainn, who took over publication, and later editorship, at his Three Candles Press in Dublin, 1929; last issued appeared in July 1956.

The Irish Book Lover section of this website gives Table of Contents information for all volumes in the series based on the printed version of the same in The Irish Book Lover: An Irish Studies Handbook, ed. Bruce Stewart with an introduction by Nicholas Allen (Gerrards Cross 2004).
