1916 Rebellion Handbook

Recommended Posts

archangel9

Just picked up a little gem in my local library, "1916 Rebellion Handbook", “First published 1916 by Weekly Irish Times. This edition published 1998 by The Mourne River Press.” I believe the book is hard enough to find. So far I’ve only had a quick browse and read the list of contents, but amongst other things it contains –

Official Casualty Lists – Military, RIC, DMP and GR.

Honours and awards to Military and Police.

Rebels killed while fighting

Prisoners deported, detained and released.

Courts martial.

Happy to do look ups while I have the book.

Inertia and failure to do the research has stopped me buying this book

Does anyone know the difference between

1916 Easter Rebellion Handbook (ISBN: 9780965088169) by Declan Kiberd

and

1916 Rebellion Handbook (ISBN: 1902090055 / 1-902090-05-5) by Declan Kiberd

The first is published by Robert R Knapp and only costs about £5 with postage

The second published by Mourne River Press and costs around £18 with postage

A number of each are available

Why do they sell for from 89p to 8 quid in the US and 33 quid in Ireland?

As far as I can see the cheaper one is ISBN: 9780965088169 and the more expensive one ISBN: 1902090055. What I am trying to find out is, are they the same book, just different printings, and is the content different?

My copy is the 1-902090-05-5 version and is softback, I believe that the other is the hardback edition. Both have 306 pages.

Thanks for that. Unless anyone advises otherwise, I assume they are the same, and I will buy the cheaper
