ABSTRACT
The article focuses on collections of books on Ireland at the Working Class Movement Library. Thomas Alfred Jackson (TAJ), founder member of the Communist Party of Great Britain and an outstanding orator, writer and organiser, made the earlier collection. Exceptionally widely read and a brilliant lecturer, TAJ delighted innumerable audiences with his humor and clarity of expression. Like his father and grandfather before him, he was a compositor by trade and as a boy he learned something of Irish history. Meanwhile, TAJ had accumulated a magnificent library of material on the subject. Some of the books are concerned with the early history of Ireland. Book titles included "The Report of the Committee of Secrecy on Ireland," "The Annals of Ireland," and many others. The biographies and autobiographies in the Greaves collection are complementary to those in the TAJ. They include Swift and other literary figures as well as numerous modern works. A small but most important section is on Roger Casement.
