Handbill, 3pp, 8vo, bifolium, good condition. Lack of progress is the theme, and there’s a reference to "Sinn Fein pamphlet No. 6" suggesting this is also published by Sinn Fein. The early reference to the founding of the Irish Parliamentary Party, founded 35 years before in 1871, suggests a publication date of 1906. This item is listed in my catalogue, "Printed and Other Material From the Papers of Robert and Sylvia Lynd", all of Irish interest. Hard copy available.No copy on COPAC, NLI or TCD
