Book 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.

Book Description: London, Chapman and Hall, 1908, 1908. 8 volumes, octavo. Original quarter vellum, grey cloth boards, titles to upper boards and spines gilt, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Some typical spotting to endpapers and fore edges, boards gently bowed, a couple of hinges a trifle strained as often, slight marking to covers, spine ends a little creased on volumes 4 and 8. A very good set. Frontis portrait to first volume. First collected edition, first issue binding. This marvellous piece of publishing coincides with that transitional period in Yeats's development as a writer when the early project is more or less complete and before the finding of his later voice. This set neatly collects the first canon in a decidedly well printed edition. Sales were slow and perhaps as much as half the edition were later issued in a secondary, cheaper cloth binding. Sets like ours in the primary quarter vellum binding and in nice condition are uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 41463

Book Description: A. H. Bullen, London, 1904. Hardcover. First Edition. Original green linen-backed gray paper boards with paper spine label. Wade 56. Published in March 1904. This copy while not signed by the author is INSCRIBED by him on the front endpaper: "To MD/for her [his?] birthday/Mar 1904." An educated guess is that MD might stand for the actress Miss Darragh [Florence Laetitia (Dallas) Darragh), an established figure on the London stage who appeared in the Dublin 1906 production of Yeats's plays DEIRDRE and THE SHADOWY WATERS and of whom Yeats thought very highly. Another possibility is Michael Davitt, the Irish Nationalist, whose birthday was on the 25th of March and who died in 1906. Adding to the intrigue is an old pencil note in an unidentified hand on the front pastedown: "pres. copy for Stephen Gwynn." Gwynn, author and Irish nationalist, was a champion for Yeats. According to the DICTIONARY OF NATIONAL BIOGRAPHY, "In spite of his book IRISH LITERATURE AND DRAMA (1936) and some early association with the Irish Players in London, Gwynn himself had little to do with drama, and stood apart from the fame and influence of the Abbey Theatre." Perhaps the most likely possibility is the illustrator and playwright Mabel Dearmer, a very close friend of Gwynn's who died while serving as a nurse in World War I. Gwynn wrote a memoir of her in Dearmer's posthumously published LETTERS FROM A FIELD HOSPITAL. Thus the pencil note related to Gwynn could refer to his receiving the book from Dearmer or from a member of her family after her death. An altogether Very Good and intriguing copy.

Book 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
