Literary lover's lane
Book collectors will be delighted at the latest addition to Dublin’s eclectic collection of antiquarian book stores.
Located in Pembroke Lane, Dublin 4, First Editions is aptly steeped in literary history.
Once the site of the Wee Store, a local provisions shop, Patrick Kavanagh would often visit and chat with the owner Mary Harrison, a fellow Monaghan native. Visits were timed carefully so that paths would not cross with rival scribe Brendan Behan.
Owner Allan Gregory, chairman of the Irish Byron Society, is on hand to guide you through his diverse selection of antiquarian and modern first editions, offering the best professional advice – so it’s definitely worth the trip. More details available on firsteditions.ie
