The launch of a special collection of essays

The launch of the George Boole Chronicles brings about the conclusion of a exemplory piece of work. This exclusive selection of short essays is punctuated with many previously unpublished images of the Boole family. It is designed to reveal some aspects of the complex life of George Boole, the man and his remarkable family. 

Included are short histories on Lincoln- his place of birth; on Queen’s College Cork - where he worked as Professor of Mathematics; Lichfield Cottage- the place he died – and how he is remembered today. George Boole’s own family contributed greatly to this publication and their stories give an insight into how his genetic influence was such a powerful one. 

For anyone interested in food there is also a brand new recipe, George Boole’s College Puddings (adapted from an unpublished Victorian Recipe Book in the Boole Library, UCC) as well as a short story on Victorian dining in Cork. 

If you would like to attend the launch please email georgeboole200@ucc.ie where there is a limited number of tickets available.

UCC greatly and gratefully acknowledges the support of David Giltinan in enabling the project
