Ownership Inscription in Later Essays 1917-1920 by Austin Dobson


Description Possible owners inscription reads "Augustine Birrell / March 10th 1921 / Dies dolorosa - 1915." The reverse of the page includes a handwritten list of other works by the author and some annotations are included in the text. If it is the same Augustine Birrell, he was Chief Secretary for Ireland (1907-1916). The "Dies dolorosa - 1915" might refer to the troubles he experienced that year with World War I, the Irish uprisings and the death of his wife Eleanor. He resigned in 1916 after criticisms of his response to the Irish uprisings.
