This book provides a fascinating account of the castles of South 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, fortified houses, bawns and town defences in the counties of Cork, Kerry and Waterford, which make up the southern half of the province of Munster. An introduction describing the development of castellated buildings of stone in South Munster, dating from the early 13th century to the late 17th century, is followed by three gazetteers describing the history and architecture of over 220 such buildings. The gazetteers are illustrated with many plans, drawings and photographs, and there is also a map of surviving buildings. Lists at the end of the gazetteers give summary information on another 80 buildings, and there are 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, and there is slight spine roll along the left hand edge.
