This Society, founded in part by Sir John Pentland Mahaffy, was in existence from 1908 to 1913. The volumes it produced are now scarce, and are filled with photograph plates of architecture from the two decades previous to the Georgian Period in Dublin, until the first decades of the 19th century. This volume describes seven of the larger Dublin mansions dating from 1697 to 1792, and then gives similar accounts of Georgian houses in the city. The portrayals go beyond the physical descriptions, and include much history and notices of their occupants.
