A Real Paddy. [Egan, Real Life In Ireland: Or, The Day and Night Scenes, Rovings A Real Paddy. [Egan, Pierce]. Real Life In Ireland: Or, The Day and Night Scenes, Rovings, Rambles and Sprees, Bulls, Blunders and Bodderation and Blarney of Brian Boru, Esq., and his Elegant Friend Sir Shawn O’Dogherty. London, Methuen and Co., 1904. 11 x 17.5cm. Frontispiece, (16), 312 pages, with 18 coloured illustration plates. Additional spine label included in rear of book. Original clothbound hardcover. Very good condition, with minor signs of shelf wear to spine. [The Illustrated Pocket Library of Plain and Coloured Books].

First published in 1821 by an anonymous author calling themselves a ‘Real Paddy’, this edition of Real Life in Ireland, was published in London in 1904. Commentators have observed that Real Life in Ireland was a natural continuation of Pierce Egan’s (1772-1849) hilarious volumes on Life in London. Like Life in London, Real Life in Ireland was initially shunned by educated readers and even a quick glance at the language and misdeeds of the central characters, Brian Boru and Sir Shawn O’Doherty, reveal that such a publication may once have been able to cause and give offence. However, Real Life in Ireland is more akin to the works of Flann O’Brien and although written nearly 200 years ago is very readable and very funny. Opening with the discharge of Shawn O’Dogherty from college in Dublin with a small fortune to spend, he is joined from the country by his friend Brian Boru, who along the way is regaled by the stories of Peg O’Shambles, a one-time cockle picker from Ringsend in Dublin, who has fallen on hard times due to her alcoholic husband’s misdeeds. Accompanied by many humerus cartoons of Brian Boru’s adventures, the characters travel from Belfast to make merry in Dublin. While the characters in Real Life in Ireland might be fictitious the places, events and the Hiberno-Irish featured throughout are not. Real Life in Ireland provides a clear account of Dublin and its inhabitants, as well as the major sights and attractions of its suburbs. All-in-all, the 368 pages of Real Life in Ireland make for a highly entertaining and extremely funny read and has much to recommend it to a modern readership that might be unfamiliar with its kind.

Temple Bar was a literary periodical of the mid and late 19th and very early 20th centuries (1860–1906). The complete title was Temple Bar – A London Magazine for Town and Country Readers. It was initially edited by George Augustus Sala, and Arthur Ransome was the final editor before it folded, while he developed his literary career. It was also edited by Mary Elizabeth Braddon.
Temple Bar was founded a year after the first publication of William Thackeray’s The Cornhill Magazine, by one of Charles Dickens’ followers, Sala, who promised his readers that the periodical would be “full of solid yet entertaining matter, that shall be interesting to Englishmen and Englishwomen…and that Filia-familias may read with as much gratification as Pater or Mater-familias”, appealing to a solid, literate middle-class. A rather congratulary review of the arrival of the impending publication appeared in the New York Times in October 1860 saying that it promised “The name is a happy one; pregnant with good things and seasoned with the promise of Attic salt”.
It sold for about one shilling, and was one of the leading literary magazines of the era. 553 issues were published – up to 1906, about one a month. It published work by writers such as Amy Levy, Jane Austen, Wilkie Collins, Charles Reade, Robert Louis Stevenson, Anthony Trollope, Arthur Conan Doyle, E. F. Benson and Jessie Fothergill. Initially the magazine achieved a circulation of some 30,000 which eventually settled at around the 13,000 mark in the late 1860s. In 1868 Bentley’s Magazine was merged into it. By 1896 circulation had dropped to about 8,000. (Wikipedia)

Saint Mary Euphrasia (July 31, 1796 – April 29, 1868) was born Rose Virginia Pelletier.

She was born on an island off the coast of France where her parents had been exiled by the French Revolutionaries. At the age of 18, Rose Virginie joined the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity in Tours, France, and received the name Mary Euphrasia. The Order of Our Lady of Charity cared for girls and women in difficulty. While superior at Tours, Sr. Mary Euphrasia formed a contemplative group of sisters, the Sisters Magdelen (now known as the Contemplatives of the Good Shepherd), for penitent women who wished to live a cloistered life. In 1829, St. Mary Euphrasia traveled to Angers at the request of the Bishop to establish a home in his Diocese. She was given permission to found the congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd, and on April 3, 1835 she became the first Superior General of the Congregation of the Good Shepherd of Angers. Mary Euphrasia was Mother General of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd for 33 years. By the time of her death in Angers, France, in 1868 she had established 110 Good Shepherd convents around the world. Mary Euphrasia was beatified on April 30, 1933 and canonized as a saint by Pope Pius XII in 1940. Her feast day is April 24. [Sisters of the Good Shepherd]
