BARDIC SYNTACTICAL TRACTS
Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, 1979. Facsimile reprint of the 1944 edition. Blue cloth. (xx), 304 pp. Nice bookplate on front pastedown; very nearly fine otherwise. Text in Irish with notes and intro. in English. "Portions of four MSS are here printed; they are those which deal with the grammar, and - to some extent at least - with the metre of Bardic Poetry. Their whole style and matter make it clear that they were intended as hand-books to be used by the professors in the Bardic schools for the instruction of their scholars in correct Bardic language and versification. A comparison of each of the MSS with the others strongly suggests that they arr derive from a common source, viz, that they contain portions, partly the same, partly different, of a more comprehensive and more detailed work on the subject." - Introduction.
