Sketch of the Origin and Operations of the Society for Irish Church Missions to the Roman-Catholics. Being a Record of Important Documents and Information to the Commencement of the Year 1852 [Third Edition].


Scarce Catholica/anti-Catholica-related title published in 1852 concerning The Irish Church Mission founded in 1849 with the intent to convert Ireland’s Roman Catholics to Protestantism. One controversial tenant of The Irish Church Missions to the Roman Catholic during the period of the Irish Famine (1845–1852) was the belief that the famine was God’s punishment upon Irish Catholics for their chosen faith. See Miriam Moffitt’s The Society for Irish Church Missions to the Roman Catholics, 1849-1950 (Manchester University Press, 2010).

By 1854, Marrable’s work had gone into a 7th edition. All editions are scarce within institutions and libraries, each located in three copies or less. The present edition is found in one copy at Cambridge as confirmed by OCLC and COPAC. No copies of any edition are found in the trade at present.
