HC Deb 19 April 1875 vol 223 c1208

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Why the publication of Fac-similes of National Manuscripts of Ireland, published by authority of the Lords Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury under the direction of the Master of the Rolls in Ireland, was discontinued in January last after the sale of twenty-five Copies; and when the issue and sale of the said work will be resumed?


Sir, the sale of the fac-similes of the Irish manuscripts was stopped temporarily, because the arrangements for their issue were incomplete, a sufficient number of copies was not ready, and the price had not been fixed. These matters have now been settled, and the sale will proceed without delay.
