Item Description: London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Co., 1889, 1889. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt, black coated endpapers. In a blue quarter morocco slipcase. Short tear to fore edge of the front free endpaper, corners bumped but an excellent copy. First edition, first impression. A major literary association copy with Yeats's contemporary presentation inscription to the first blank leaf, "To the poet of the North Countrie Joseph Skipsey with the author's kind regards". Yeats has made minor corrections to the text on four pages. The recipient was a remarkable figure in the literary world of the late 19th century. The son of a Northumberland miner, Joseph Skipsey resisted following his family down the pits. Instead he studied alone and took to writing. He established himself as the poetical voice his community and gained national recognition as a poet and critic. After holding a number of unrewarding positions of the periphery of educational institutions he moved in 1889 to Stratford-upon-Avon where he and his wife were appointed joint custodians of Shakespeare's Birthplace. However after less than two years he became disenchanted with the job which (he confided in a letter not to be opened until after his death) involved dealing with relics which had "no definite history" and having to "perpetuate error and fraud" on the visitors and general public. Presentation copies of this landmark Yeats title are of the utmost scarcity, the present example being the only one with a literary association to appear on the market in 35 years. Wade 2.

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Co., Limited 1923-34, 1923. Together 6 works, octavo. Original green or red cloth, titles to spine gilt, pages untrimmed. Light rubbing to ends of spines, corners gently bumped, some sunning to spines, a few works with soiling and markings to spine and boards, 5 inner hinges cracked, Collected Poems with bumping to upper board edge, occasional spotting. Overall a very good group of first and early editions. Presentation copies to his lover Margot Collis, inscribed by Yeats "To Margot from her friend W B Yeats Oct 1934" on the front free endpaper or half-title in four works. Plays in Prose and Verse contains two authorial annotations, signed by Yeats with his initials, one to the beginning of the play Deirdre ("I have crossed out a number of needless lines in the opening of the play. WBY"); another at the end of The Player Queen: "I have altered the end. As last played in Dublin Decima put on a mask left behind by the players [and] makes them dance. They have shed their animal forms. She throws them money - if I remember rightly - her ambiguous words are a farewell to all this she has loved. They get banishment but with great rewards. WBY." Later Poems, uninscribed, has Collis's pencil ownership inscription dated 20 September 1930 and so was hers before she met Yeats. Plays and Controversies is also uninscribed. Margot Collis was the stage name used by the Irish actress Marguerite Ruddock (1907-1951). Her intense relationship with Yeats started in the year these books were presented. Collis was also a poet and Yeats is said to have helped edit her works; he included some of her work in his edition of the Oxford Book of Modern Verse (1936). At the time of her relationship with Yeats, Collis was married to actor Raymond Lovell. She fell passionately in love with Yeats, though he remained married to Georgie. The relationship unravelled and Collis became unstable, offering Yeats the inspiration for his poem "A Crazed Girl". Their correspondence was later published under the title Ah, Sweet Dancer (1970). The works are in various editions: Plays and Controversies (1923) and Essays (1924) are first editions; Autobiographies (1926) is the first collected edition; Collected Poems (1934) is second impression; Plays in Prose and Verse (Dec. 1931) is fourth impression; and Later Poems (Mar. 1926) is also fourth impression. Laid-in is a 4-page autograph letter signed "BM" (unidentified; on 25 Burton Court SW3 letterhead) advising the unnamed recipient (probably Yeats) on the writing of a play and the portrayal of characters.

Item Description: Macmillan, London, 1928. Decorative Cloth. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. Superb First Impression (one of only 2000 copies) of this cornerstone of the Modern Movement, "a peak in English poetry" (Connolly), "the summit of Yeats's creative achievement. He thought it the best book he had written, and he was right." (ODNB), Small 8vo: vi,110,[2, ads]pp. Publisher's olive-green cloth, spine and upper cover lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt with one of Thomas Sturge Moore's most beautiful cover engravings, depicting Ballylee and its reflection; all edges untrimmed; sea-green pictorial dust jacket printed in black, repeating Moore's cover design and priced 6/-. A very Fine, bright copy, apparently unread, in a virtually flawless jacket marred only by several faint tape ghosts unseen on the verso. Connolly 56a. Wade 158. The Tower opens with a meditation on aging or, more specifically, on how to escape it. In "Sailing to Byzantium," the poet dreams of leaving Ireland, "no country for old men," to be reincarnated as a singing mechanical bird in a Byzantine court. In "The Tower," Yeats laments his lost love for Maude Gonne, "a strikingly beautiful former débutante, with the height and presence of a Valkyrie" (ONDB), and ruminates on reconciling his youthful spirit with his aging body. The collection also contains his two great sequences on history and violence, ‘Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen,' inspired by the Bolshevik Revolution, and ‘Meditations in Time of Civil War,' an account of the chaos that gripped Ireland from 1922 to 1923. The tower of the title was Thoor Ballylee, in County Galway, near Coole, in which Yeats and his family lived during the 1920s, when they weren't in their Dublin townhouse. This sixteenth-century Norman castle consisted of four floors with just one room on each, connected by a spiral stone stairway built into the seven-foot thickness of the massive outer wall. Each floor had a window overlooking the river which flowed alongside. N. B.

Item Description: Dundrum: The Dun Emer Press, 1904, 1904. Octavo. Original holland boards, blue endpapers, printed paper label to upper board. Title label to spine defective, joints split and frayed, corners rubbed. Good. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the first blank, "Mrs Worthington, from her friend the writer, with pleasant memories of the Hudson. W. B. Yeats, May 1905". Below the inscription Yeats has drawn out a line of glyphs representing the zodiacal signs for the time of his birth on 13 June 1865. The Mabel Dickinson copy was similarly inscribed, but with the symbols representing the recipient's date of birth, and as such this is the only copy we know of bearing Yeats's own signature in this occult form. Julia H. Worthington (1856–1913) was an American socialite and patron of the arts with whom Yeats stayed for a time. Jack Yeats, when in New York, described her as "a sort of Duchess over here. Socially clever and a friend to all the distinguished people." Yeats and Worthington had a number of mutual friends, including Edward Elgar and also John Quinn, the organiser of Yeats's highly popular American lecture tour that made his reputation as an international figure.

Item Description: Macmillan, New York, 1919. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine/Very Good. First Edition. Octavo, 114pp., Nice clean crisp book and dust jacket. Dust jacket wrapped in a fresh Mylar sleeve. Very small chips and edge tears on jacket. Wade 125. SIGNED ink ink and dated Feb 18, 1920 by Yeats on the title page.Bound in original gray paper covered boards lettered in black with ornate front cover and spine designs by Sturge Moore. Includes original dust jacket with these same designs. Butler was on a five month lecture tour in the United States during the period this book was signed. William Butler Yeats (13 June 1865 - 28 January 1939) was an Irish poet and one of the foremost figures of 20th century literature. A pillar of both the Irish and British literary establishments, in his later years he served as an Irish Senator for two terms. Yeats was a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival and, along with Lady Gregory, Edward Martyn, and others, founded the Abbey Theatre, where he served as its chief during its early years. In 1923, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature as the first Irishman so honored for what the Nobel Committee described as "inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation." Yeats is generally considered one of the few writers who completed their greatest works after being awarded the Nobel Prize; such works include The Tower (1928) and The Winding Stair and Other Poems (1929). Yeats was a very good friend of American expatriate poet and Bollingen Prize laureate Ezra Pound. His earliest volume of verse was published in 1889, and its slow-paced and lyrical poems display Yeats's debts to Edmund Spenser, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and the poets of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. From 1900, Yeats's poetry grew more physical and realistic. Bookseller Inventory # 025560

Item Description: New York: The Macmillan Company, 1919. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 8vo., grey paper boards lettered in black with ornate front cover and spine designs by Sturge Moore; spine expertly rebacked, repaired bumped corner, slightly soiled. First American edition, (Wade 125). This copy is signed by Yeats, “W. B. Yeats, Feb. 13, 1920,” on the title page. ----- From the library of Dorothy Worthington Butts (Dorothy Gardner), with the noted author’s ownership signature and Northampton, Massachusetts, address on the front free endpaper. ----- A student at Smith College at the time, Butts dated the book, February 14, 1920, the day after W. B. Yeats, then on a five month lecture tour in the United States, signed this copy for her. Perhaps the encounter with the famed poet inspired her to become a writer. Gardner’s play, “Eastward in Eden,” appeared on Broadway in 1947, starring the future Academy Award winner Beatrice Straight as the poet Emily Dickinson. Two years later, Longmans, Green published the work as “Eastward to Eden: The Love Story of Emily Dickinson.” Jan Meyerowitz later produced it as an opera, for which Gardner provided the libretto. A significant association copy with a distinguished provenance. a.p.o. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-15658750977

Item Description: London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1891, 1891. Tall octavo. Original yellow wrappers printed in black. In a marbled, vellum-backed solander case. Small cataloguing entry pasted to the verso of the rear wrapper. Wrappers lightly rubbed and marked, spine cracked and repaired, contents toned. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, of Yeats's early pseudonymous work of folklore (his third published book, and his first published prose-work), tenth in Unwin's Pseudonym library. This copy is signed by Yeats on the title page and dated November 19 1891, for G. A. Greene (whose ownership inscription appears on the front cover and title page, and who has written out W. B. Yeats's true name under the printed pseudonym "Ganconagh"). Greene was an associate of Yeats acquainted with him through the Rhymers' Club, the syndicate of mystics, aesthetes and decadents that met at the Olde Cheshire Cheese pub (also the erstwhile haunt of Dr Johnson and of Dickens) just off Fleet Street between 1890 and 1894 to write and discuss poetry, and to drink. Yeats included 12 of Greene's poems in the two issues (1892 and 1984) of club's anthology, the "Book of the Rhymers' Club", including Greene's "Song of the Songsmiths", a poetic anthem marking the first anniversary of the group. About John Sherman and Dhoya, one of the earliest of Yeats's published compositions, Yeats would later say that it was "written when I was very young, and knew no better", though it did earn him £40 when he was in need of the money, and does contain the germ of Yeats's later preoccupation with mythography. While first edition copies of this title are elusive already, signed and association copies are scarce indeed. Wade 4. Bookseller Inventory # 59427
