Summary
According to the Oxford history of the Irish book, volume IV, "One of the largest collections of fiction books in Ireland was in the library of Castle Bellew in County Galway. The library's reputation was well-established by 1845 when The Parliamentary Gazetteer of Ireland announced that Mr. Bellew 'possessed a library of comparatively great value in its general materials, and particularly rich in manuscripts and rare works relative to Ireland.' Its 3800 titles were sold in the 1930s. According to the book collector Michael Sadleir, the sale 'of the Bellew Library was surely one of the peak moments in the history of modern book-collecting;'" see volume IV, page 236. The Oxford history goes on to describe the Bellew library as "particularly rich in the Greek and Roman classics, and it contained many French works, as well as Italian, Spanish, and English literature. There were many works on Irish and Catholic history, and Irish dictionaries and grammars (by Andrew Donlevy, Hugh MacCurtin, John O'Brien, Paul O'Brien, and Charles Vallancey" (page 295)
