Henri d’Arbois de Jubainville studied law in Nancy before graduating from the École des Chartes in 1851. He was appointed to the first chair in Celtic studies in the Collège de France in 1882, and tutored J. M. Synge in Old Irish during his years in Paris. Jubainville’s many publications ranged very widely over law, paleography, history, language and literature. His library came to the University in 1914. (DIB)
These wonderful block-printed endpapers are unusual if used in an 18th century French book unless the item is bound in Alsace. Henri d'Arbois de Jubainville was from Lorraine which is quite close to Alsace. On the endpapers are also Arbois de Jubainville's bookplate and the Robert Gibbings designed bookplate of the Library of University College Cork.
This Pelloutier item has the owner's label of L. Dussieux above the Robert Gibbings designed bookplate of the Library of University College Cork. Louis Dussieux was a noted French historical geographer.
