This work, by a Dublin historian and member of a distinguished Irish legal family, was first published in 1926. The two volumes cover judges in Ireland during the seven centuries when the authority of England was absolute in their appointment, and show the manner of men that were raised to the benches of the Irish Superior Courts, the influences which accounted for their selection, the circumstances in which their duties were discharged, and the estimation in which their services were held. Beginning in 1221 with the appointment of Thomas Fitzadam, an Irishman, as second justice itinerant, and ending in 1921, when the last appointment to judicial office in Ireland on the advice of English Ministers took effect. It includes succession lists and succinct biographies of the judges.
