two coloured plates. This scheme however folded and only a few plates
were published. Although he was active in the efforts that led in 1823 to
the incorporation of the Royal Hibernian Academy he moved shortly afterwards
to London. This history is a greatly expanded development of his
earlier intentions and was the best history of the university published up to

Lisburn born Nicholson was lauded by his peers for his military exploits
on behalf of the British Empire in Pakistan and afghanistan and was one
of many soldiers of the North West Frontier who created their own mythology
of selfless duty and heroism. This work perpetuates the myth, when in
reality, Nicholson was an imperialist psychopath who personally supervised
the blasting from the guns of 107 mutineers in Peshawar in 1857. If
you like fairy tales this is a must.

The first index to prerogative wills was compiled by Sir William Betham,
Ulster King of Arms, under the auspices of the Irish Record Commission.
Betham superintended the work of indexing and at the same time performed
the mammoth task of compiling a genealogical abstract of each
record down to 1800 (approximately 37,000). In the 1890's his eventual
successor Sir Arthur Vicars revised Betham's index bringing it up to 1810
and first published his results in 1897.
A quarter of a century later virtually all Irish wills were destroyed in the
Four Courts in 1922, thus making this index an invaluable and important
source of genealogical research.

Commissioners were appointed to inquire into the treatment of treasonfelony
convicts in English prisons. Reports related solely to the following
Irish prisoners and their respective prisons. (1) At Woking Prison the following
Irish were confined: thomas F. Bourke, Brian Dillon, Denis D.
Mulcahy, William F. Roantree, John Murphy, Patrick Ryan, edward
Power and Rickard o'S. Burke, alias Berry. At Chatham Prison: John
Devoy, C.u. o'Connell, John McClure, William Halpin, alias John
Hart, J. o'Donovan Rossa, Henry Shaw, alias Mullidy. At Dartmoor
Prison, one Irish prisoner, Patrick lennon. And at Portland Prison: John
o'leary, george Brown, t.C. luby, W. Mackay, Michael Sheehy,
Mortimer Shea, alias Moriarty, edward St. Clair, Peter Mohan, John
McCafferty, Patrick Doran and Patrick Walsh. Comprehensive Report
on the special treatment reserved for Irish political prisoners in English
Gaols. While it is obvious that the governors, prisoner officers and general "screws" were desperate to convey the impression of humane and compassionate
care the reality is shocking, the Irish prisoners were treated deplorably
and in the case of Jeremiah o'Donovan Rossa, his treatment
was little short of barbaric. This is crystal clear from his own evidence
before the commission and that of a decent physician Dr. Robert lyons
who submitted a special repost roundly criticising the prison authorities
treatment of O'Donovan Rossa.

Further enquiry into the treatment of following Irish political prisoners at
Chatham: James McKevitt, James Mcgrath, thomas gallagher, albert
Whitehead, Henry Wilson, John Curtin, timothy Featherstone,
Patrick Flanagan, Henry Dalton, James McCullagh, thomas Devany,
Peter Callaghan, Henry McCann, terence McDermott, James F.
egan, John Daly, Harry Burton, James g. gilbert, John Duff, thomas
Callan and Michael Harkins. Among the Irish complaints were their
treatment as "special prisoners". Their hostile treatment by the lower officers,
fostered by the authorities. Prisoner Wilson stated "The bitter hatred
of the average Chatham officer for the Irish Fenian makes itself felt in a
thousand ways and we are all ill treated by the lower officers because they
know that they can do with impunity". The over all conclusion of this
comprehensive report was worthy of Widgery whose "Whitewash Report"
a century later was just one of many produced by the British establisment over four hundred years in relation to the "Irish Question" and
which invariably ruled strongly in favour of the Empire against the wiles
of "Duplicitous Pat".

British Consul Roger Casement was knighted in 1911 for his investigations
into the genocide of tribal inhabitations of the Congo Free State and
the Indian natives of the Putumayo Region in the Amazon Rainforest. In
July 1910 Casement was instructed by Sir edward grey, The Secretary
of the Foreign Office to travel to Peru and investigate the activities of the
Peruvian amazon Company in the Putumayo Region. Casement spent
4/5 harrowing months from August to November 1910 in this god forsaken
region and the above correspondence submitted to Gray on his return to
London in January 1911 was unprecedented in its horrific descriptions of
murder, torture and rape by employees of the Peruvian Amazon Company
against the gentle and friendly natives who had been enslaved and forced
to collect and transport rubber along the banks of the Putumayo River.
The atrocities were simply appalling. When Casement's correspondence
to gray was eventually published in 1912 (delayed due to British/Peruvian
Government diplomatic manoeuvres) it created a sensation and Casements
compassionate and humanitarian anger struck a chord with both a British
and European audience.

moroc. label. Scarce. €650
In June 1903, Lord Lansdowne, the British Foreign Minister instructed
Roger Casement, their Consul at Boma, to undertake a personal survey of
the conditions existing in the Upper Congo. This project was precipitated
by vague rumours of unethical behaviour of Belgian overseers on the rubber
plantations. Casement arrived at Leopoldville on the 6th June and for
the next 10 weeks traversed the Upper Congo where his worse fears were
confirmed. King Leopold's Annexation of over a million square miles of
territory in central Africa and his country's rapacious exploitation of the
Congo's natural resources of ivory and particularly rubber, was evident.
Torture, murder and mutilation were daily occurrences. Casements graphic
report to Lord Landsdowne was published in 1904 and his vivid and horrific
descriptions of limb amputation, even for trifling misdemeanours
caused outrage on publication. Overnight Casement had become a "celebrity". However his disgust for empires and their excesses had been
fuelled in the steaming jungles of the Congo with long term disastrous implications
