Abstract
  • Image located in the collections of: TCD EPB V.k.76 ; NLI T ; PLIr ; RIA RR ; UCD SC.This puzzling print is described as "a correct representation of the Society, lately established in Dublin, for burning English Christianity" and depicts a peaceful scene of gentlemen engaged in heated conversation while smoking pipes and surveying the burning of books. To the left a portly man presides over the scene from an elevated chair surmounted by two joined hands, and below a harp encircled by shamrock. Two portraits hang on the wall to the back with the captions Robt Emmet and Lord Ed'. The satirical editorial claims it advertises its fortnightly meetings "at Mr. Cox's, in Abbey street.", i.e. the offices of the IM.
