This text is a heavily corrected version of the OCR copy hosted by The Internet Archive here, checked against my own meatspace edition. The date of publication is 1880. Be aware that the language in question is Scottish Gaelic, or Erse, as opposed to its Irish counterpart. And why am I noding this book? It was an obscure estate sale find for me this year and, as well as being edifying, it is occasionally hilarious. The chapters will appear gradually over the next couple of months and I'll bold their titles on the index above as they are added. Enjoy.
