Very interesting collection of old book covers here

Everything from fishing to celibacy to textbooks.

That Donach de Roiste one is interesting to me personally. I remember trying to read it in the late 1970s. Was it part of the Reics Carlo sequence of books originally written by Cathal O Sandair? Very science fictional in places.

BTW a lot of the books on that site were published by An Gúm – which was (and perhaps still is) a part of the Dept. of Education IIRC and charged with assisting in expanding the range of Irish language books, inc. translations.

Great site there.

I love the “Sladmhargadh” cover- very Alex Raymond-ish.
