Tom Moore. Irish melodies

Carr reported only one edition of poems by Tom Moore (1779-1852) in his History of the QTP (1987. It was published back-to-back with Dream children by Charles Lamb.

This small book is unusual in that no details of the publisher are given - no colophon, no address, no telephone number, no Carr. It is identified by the style, size and Carr's handwriting inside both covers, front and front.
