A VERY old book written by someone who witnessed the Battle of the Boyne more than 300 years ago will be the star attraction at a book fair taking place in Belfast this weekend.

Organiser of the 30th annual Belfast book fair James Vallely has described ‘An Impartial History of the Wars of Ireland’ by George Warter Story as a piece of history in itself.

However, the historic tome will not be the oldest book available at the fair which will take place at the Wellington Park Hotel in south Belfast on Saturday.
