This article gives an account of Richard Twisss own annotated copy of the London edition of his A Tour of Ireland in 1775, in which he inserted the four pages (162-165) which he had removed from the edition as published. These pages contain an attack on Gorges Edmond Howard, and a full transcription of the text of the missing pages is provided in this article. Included also are Twisss many other manuscript additions and annotations to the text. According to Hyland and Kelly, the discovery of Twisss own copy, complete with the missing pages and the authors annotations, is more than just a bibliographical curiosity, it is a matter of some cultural as well as literary consequence.
