Ware, James, The antiquities and history of Ireland, vol. 1.1: Inquiries concerning Ireland and its antiquities, Dublin: A. Crook, for Eliphal Dobson and Matthew Gunne, 1705.  

After some preliminary matter (unpaginated), including a life of Sir James Ware, the Antiquities is found on pp. 1-154, followed by additional material on pp. 154-172 and further appendices (left unpaginated).

Ware, James, The antiquities and history of Ireland, vol. 1.2: Annals of the affairs of Ireland: from the first conquest by the English, in the reign of King Henry, II., unto the end of the reign of Queen Elizabeth, Dublin: A. Crook, for Eliphal Dobson and Matthew Gunne, 1705.  

The use of separate pagination divides the treatment of the annals into three parts. The first part, covering the reigns of Henry II to Henry VI, is found on pp. 1-76. The second covers the reigns of Henry VII (pp. 1-56), Henry VIII (57-114), Edward VI (115-129) and Queen Mary (130-146) and contains an additional section about the life of George Browne (147-163). The third and final part is devoted to the reign of Queen Elizabeth (pp. 1-64). This is followed by Gesta Hibernorum (pp. 175-196).
