The Catholic Who's Who & Year Book 1908
Edition: First Edition
London: Burns & Oates, 1908. First edition. Hardback. Original blue cloth, now faded, else a very good copy. Full of adverts for Catholic companies (or those wishing to supply the needs of Catholics). A comprehensive dictionary of British Roman Catholics alive at the time, not just clerics, but judges, lawyers, authors and military men.
In good condition. A touch of foxing to the closed page edges and fading to the spine only. Contains the book-plate of "Monasterii S. Birgittae de Sion, Chudleigh." The Syon Abbey of the Bridgettine order. (iv), xxxiv, 444, 136, (iv) pp.
Sir Francis Cowley Burnand, (1836-1917) was a Catholic writer and dramatist, knighted in 1902 for his contributions to Punch, (he was editor).
