This blank, unlined copybook pictures an imaginative composition by the world-renowned stained glass artist and illustrator Harry Clarke (1889-1931). The original is in the Memorial Records (1914-1918), which was illustrated by Clarke and compiled by the Committee of the Irish National War Memorial to preserve the names of over 49,000 Irishmen who lost their lives fighting in the Great War. A limited edition of 100 copies was published, one of which is held in the RIA Library collections.
