This chapter documents the history of the House of Maunsel, from its beginnings as Maunsel and Company under George Roberts and the financial difficulties that it went through before the Easter Rising in 1916 in Ireland, to its remarkable recovery in the years that followed. It also examines the problems encountered by Maunsel in publishing books by authors who had already established a name for themselves in London, its efforts to promote the literature of the Irish Literary Revival, and its publishing of accounts about the Rising. Finally, the chapter discusses the significance of Maunsel’s output after 1916 to overtly political discourse.
