Maurice Craig

Maurice Craig was born in Belfast in 1919 and educated at Castle Park, Dalkey and Shrewsbury School before going on to Magdalene College, Cambridge and Trinity College, Dublin. He wrote on subjects as diverse as Irish bookbindings, biography, poetry and topography but is best-remembered for his books on architectural subjects. His seminal Dublin 1660-1860 (also published by Liberties Press) appeared in 1952 and, remarkably, has been in print ever since.
