Edwin Richard Wyndham Quin was born in London in 1812. He succeeded
his father as third Earl in 1850. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin,
he had represented Glamorgan as a conservative 1837-1851. A life long enthusiast
of archaeology, he was a founder member with Petrie and
o'Donovan of the Irish Archaeological Society in 1840. The above work,
justly recognised as the finest and most lavish of all Irish Archaeological
productions is renowned for the quality of the photographs and lithos. Dunraven,
a convert to Catholicism, a highly regarded and popular landlord
and a man of considerable intellectual powers regarded "notes on Irish Architecture
as his finest achievement and his most appropriate legacy". Pristine
copies of this work rarely appear on the market.
