Abstract

This article reports on the discovery of a copy of The Peace Egg Book, a previously unknown chapbook printed in Manchester, UK. The chapbook, which has an Irish text, is set within the contexts of printing and of the Irish community in mid-nineteenth-century Manchester. The textual links between The Peace Egg Book and the Belfast Christmas Rhime Books are analysed, as are the parallels to an Irish-influenced oral tradition set out in a manuscript of 1842. The article establishes the importance of the chapbook in linking together Irish and Lancashire traditional play chapbooks.
