4 sheets stitched together non-consecutively, of Francis Grose's "Antiquities of Ireland, Vol. I", 1791 (but published in 1794). The stitching together of the pages could suggest that this was a propectus of the book, possibly sent by its editor Edward Ledwich (1737-1823) to either William Burton Conyngham (1733-1796) or Austin Cooper (1759-1830).
Cover illustration engraved by Sparrow (fl. 1772-1795).
