This souvenir book shows some of the devastation suffered by Dublin city centre during the Rising.
The rubble is all that remains of a four-storey building belonging to the bookbinders and printers, Messrs Thom, in Middle Abbey Street.
A number of rare and precious books were sent for repair to Thom’s from the library in the week before the Rising and were lost in the fire.
