Collins Collection of Irish Political Cartoons



The University Library harvested this collection from the Collins collection of books, pamphlets, newspapers, maps and cartoons. It was purchased by the Library in 1917. The Collins Collection of Irish Political Cartoons consists of images drawn primarily from the Weekly Freeman and National Press and United Ireland newspapers. They address the subject of Irish politics of the late 1800s and early 1900s and, in particular, Irelandís relationship with England.
