Our publishing company, ‘Edmund Burke Publishers’ makes a significant contribution to the canon of Irish historical publications and literary works. When proprietor Éamonn de Búrca emigrated from the West of Ireland to England in 1968, he carried with him his most prized possession: an 1862 copy of The History of Ireland by Thomas Moore, which he bought for IR£1 (€1.27). ‘That was the start of my bibliomania. I have been collecting ever since,’ says Éamonn. Since setting up De Búrca Rare Books in 1981, Éamonn has become one of the leading specialist in books of Irish interest. Now joined by his son, Will, this friendly family business has expanded to encompass books that range from very rare earliest printings to modern first editions.

De Búrca Rare Books adheres to the highest professional standards of bookselling. The company is a member of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association (ABA), the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) and the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association (PBFA).
