The Roots of Music

Malachi McCormick
The Roots of Music: The Irish Harp in Poetry and Legend
Stone Street Press, USA, 1999
Three tiny handmade books, in a luxurious slipcase; hand titled on the outside in gold ink and with hand-lettered title letters. The books are printed from a handwritten original. The three books each have an introduction, a poem in Irish with facing English translation, and an ancient story. They make an effective introduction to the symbolism and significance of the harp, and would be a lovely gift for an early harp enthusiast or anyone interested in Irish culture.
