This book provides a fascinating account of the castles of North Munster in Ireland, and is illustrated throughout with lots of small black and white photographs, as well as drawings, maps and floor plans.

From the rear side cover: This book is a comprehensive guide to castles, bawns, town defences and fortified houses in the counties of Clare, Limerick and Tipperary, which form the northern half of the province of Munster. An introduction describing the development of castellated buildings of stone dating from the beginning of the 13th century until the mid 17th century in North Munster is followed by three gazetteers describing the history and architecture of 335 such buildings. The gazetteers are illustrated with many plans, drawings and photographs, and there are also two maps showing the locations of surviving buildings. Lists at the ends of the gazetteers give summary information on another 120 buildings of which there are now only minor remains, and there are also lists of sites of former castles.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, with only very light wear along the edges, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. The book does curve very gently along the left and right hand edges, from where it has been stored flat on the shelves.
