HUGHES, Terence McMahon.

An overland journey to Lisbon at the close of 1846; with a picture of the actual state of Spain and Portugal.

First edition; rare. Terence McMahon Hughes (1812–1849) was the son of a flax buyer of Newry, County Down. He wrote for the Irish nationalist weekly paper The Nation, as did his sister Margaret Callan. His Revelations of Spain in 1845 'gives a reliable account of the fall of Espartero and the rise of Narvaez, and his descriptions of Queen Isabel and her camarilla are well and ruthlessly drawn. Hughes had at least lived in Spain, mostly in Seville or Cadiz, and was an eye-witness of many of the events he recorded' (Robertson).
