Ardna Gashel - an Allegory

It also encompasses their lifelong devotion to cats, which feature often in Edwin’s drawings and illustrations. There is a village called Ardnagashel on the shores of Bantry Bay in County Cork'; decorations by Edwin Smith, the author's husband; #161/300 numbered copies signed by the author and artist.
