Every Irishman's Library

Fell down an internet rabbit hole this morning and found out that this series exists...

It does not look like any volumes have been recorded. In fact, the only author from a solo volume that has anything on Librivox is Maria Edgeworth.

Flipping through a few of the volumes, there's LOTS of potential here --even if no one is currently feeling up to recording a whole book solo or BC-ing it, lots of great possibilities for short works collections, especially in the Poetry, Wild Sports, Humours volumes

Every Irishman's Library (modeled on the Everyman's Library I'm assuming...)
(including Internet Archive links only for now -- can't check PG as it is currently down)
