Excerpt from The Book of Rights
The Council of the Celtic Society having intrusted me with the superintendence of this volume in its progress through the Press, I hereby certify that it is, in all respects, conformable to the rules of the Society. I also take this opportunity of expressing, upon the part of the Council, their thanks to the Royal Irish Academy, for the permission to print this work from their most valuable MSS.; to the Provost and Board of Trinity College, for access to their Manuscript Library; and to the Rev. Doctor Todd, for facilities in the consultation of it which he was kind enough to afford. To John O’ Donovan, Esq., our thanks are pre-eminently due, for the learning and zeal which he has exhibited in the editing and general arrangement of the work. In it will be recognized a further proof of the critical and profound knowledge which he possesses of the language of our country, as well as of its topography and history. The services of Mr. Eugene Curry have been invaluable, and I am happy to record that his intimate knowledge of our ancient literature has throughout, the work been made available.
I cannot close these observations without tendering our warm gratitude to the distinguished artist, Frederick W. Burton, Esq., R. H. A., whose pencil has graced our title-page with a group as classic as it is Irish, and which cannot fail to excite, in every Irish mind, true feelings of pride and satisfaction. It is to George Du Noyer, Esq., that we owe the drawings of the ancient chess-king from the cabinet of Dr. Petrie, which will be found in our Introduction; and to Mr. Hanlou we are indebted for the woodcuts used there as well as in our illustrated title-page.
