Excerpt from Calendar of the State Papers Relating to Ireland, Preserved in the Public Record Office, 1647-1660

The Preface to this Volume should begin with an apology for its abnormal size. The sheets up to page 725 had already been passed through the press, and the index was well advanced, when a considerable amount of fresh material relating to Irish affairs, and falling within the years of the Commonwealth, was discovered among the entry books of the Council of State. This material had not found a place in the Domestic Calendar for the period, though it contains many entries relating to Ireland. It was thought better to incorporate it in the present volume than to keep it for another, and thus hamper the Calendar of the years following the Restoration with documents which properly belonged to an earlier time. Accordingly, the addition was made. It resulted in extending the text of this Volume by 150 pages, with a consequent increase of the Index. All the documents dealing with Ireland in this period, except those selected by the Editor of the Domestic Calendar) are, however, now presented to the reader. I hope that the knowledge of this fact will compensate for the inconvenience of having to deal with so large a book.
