First edition, first print hardback of FINDLATERS The Story of a Dublin Merchant Family 1774-2001, by Alex Findlater and published by A & A Farmar, Dublin in 2001. Presentation copy, inscribed to author John Purkiss and signed/dated by the author on the title page. It also includes a card written by the author.

The book is in very good condition (Clean black cloth boards with gold lettering on the spine) with only minor shelf wear to the dust jacket (minor creasing to the edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

An absorbing mixture of family, social and business history, this unique memoir tells the story of the family who ran one of Dublin's best-loved wine and food businesses.

The story starts in Scotland, where `Old Alexander` was a bosom friend of Robbie Burns. The author Alex Findlater, of the fifth Irish generation, shows how the family gradually became part of the national life, expanding their interests into brewing and music halls as well as taking part in national politics, and earning themselves mentions in 'Ulysses', 'Finnegans Wake', and 'The Ginger Man' on the way.

The book is profusely illustrated from a unique archive of materials dating back to the firm's foundations in 1823 and earlier.

577 pages. Profusely illustrated with colour and black and white photographs.

ISBN: 1 899047 69 7
