London: [Hansard], ordered to be printed 13th July 1819. ORIGINAL REPORT. Large Folio (47 x 30cm), pp.; 571; . With 21 plates featuring facsimile reproductions of Irish charters, some coloured, as well as a number of large folding engraved illustrations of buildings in Dublin, all with tissue guards. In recent tan quarter calf with raised bands, gilt titles to maroon morocco label. Marbled paper-covered boards. All edges untrimmed. Some light wear to new binding; very good indeed. The Irish Record Commission (1810-1830) was established as a branch of the British Record Commission as a result of a letter from Lord Redesdale, Lord Chancellor for Ireland, to Lord Hardwicke, Lord Leiutenant, in March 1806. The exceptionally extensive and ancient records of Ireland were kept in poor, often damp conditions in Dublin Castle, without proper indexing, and it was recommended that something be done to prevent them deteriorating any further. This report was ordered by the House of Lords from the Commons, detailing the progress of the Commission to date. Item #47514
