This book provides a fascinating account of the castles of Ulster in Northern 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 guid to castles, fortified houses, bawns and town defences in the nine counties of Ireland which make up the province of Ulster. An introduction describing the development of castellated buildings of stone in Ulster, dating from the late 12th century to the mid 17th century, is followed by nine gazetteers recording the history and architectural features of over one hundred such buildings in the counties of Antrim, Armagh, Cavan, Donegal, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry, Monaghan and Tyrone. The gazetteers are illustrated with many plans, drawings, and photographs. Lists at the ends of the gazetteers give summary information on another 70 buildings, there are also lists of the sites of former castles and bawns.

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
