2 Quench the Lamp Taylor, Alice
Hardcover. Stated 1st U.S. edition hardcover with dustjacket 1991 St. Martin's. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Noticeable wear to jacket: edge-crumpling; worn corners. 173pp. Language: English. 'This collection of vignettes continues the story of Taylor's childhood in Ireland--a story begun with her Irish best seller To School Through the Fields. Each piece is a quick, entertaining glance at Irish life in the Forties and Fifties, a life slowly moving to more modern times. Recorded here are the characters, events, and traditions of a rural life that are sadly lost to memory when a society succumbs to technology. Books such as Taylor's preserve for us all an otherwise fading oral tradition.'--Kenneth J. Cook, Library Journal.
