Publisher    New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, [1973].

Seller ID   00048s

Octavo, cream cloth, gilt letters, uncut, xiii, 321 pp. Very Good+, with former-owner signature and slight fading to endpapers, in a Very Good+, price-clipped dust jacket with slight fading to spine. “Here, in this engrossing and often hilarious book, we read of how the Irish, or at least some Irish, emerged -- frequently in less than a generation's time -- out of poverty into positions of both social and business prominence...In Real Lace for the first time Stephen Birmingham takes up the story of the American Irish -- their heroism, their humor, their chicanery. This makes for a book that is more than lively entertainment. It is fascinating and important social history”.
