An impressive survey of Ireland's megalithic monuments to heroes and fallen warriors. Known also as "Cromleachs, Giants Graves, Leabas or Beds, Diarmuid and Grainne's Bed, Giant's Griddle or Griddlestones and Stone Tables" (Fr. Michael O'Flanagan Heritage Center). William Copeland Borlase (1848 - 1899), barrister-at-law and House of Commons member (1880-1887), was influenced by the work of his great-great-grandfather, Dr. William Borlase, the Cornish historian, to become a leading antiquarian. Printed by William Clowes and Sons, Limited, London. Copies available in few libraries, sometimes at auction, not currently available to the trade.
