About this Item: Blackie & Son, London, 1903. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. E. A. Cubitt (illustrator). First Edition. COLOR PLATE FRONTISPIECE BY H. M. BROCK Line text illustrations BY E. A. CUBITT. Very good green decorative art nouveau cloth. Slight wear. previous owner name inside. [n.d., 1903], 16mo, [6], 5-80pp. "Katharine Tynan (23 January 1861 - 2 April 1931) was an Irish-born writer, known mainly for her novels and poetry. After her marriage in 1898 to the writer and barrister Henry Albert Hinkson (1865-1919) she usually wrote under the name Katharine Tynan Hinkson (or Katharine Tynan-Hinkson or Katharine Hinkson-Tynan). Of their three children, Pamela Hinkson (1900-1982) was also known as a writer. Tynan was born into a large farming family in Clondalkin, County Dublin, and educated at a convent school in Drogheda. Her poems were first published in 1878. She met and became friendly with the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins in 1886.[1] Tynan went on to play a major part in Dublin literary circles, until she married and moved to England; later she lived at Claremorris, County Mayo when her husband was a magistrate there from 1914 until 1919. For a while, Tynan was a close associate of William Butler Yeats (who may have proposed marriage and been rejected, around 1885), and later a correspondent of Francis Ledwidge. She is said to have written over 100 novels; there were some unsurprising comments about a lack of self-criticism in her output. Her Collected Poems appeared in 1930; she also wrote five autobiographical volumes. Tynan died in 1931 in Kensal Green, London." Wikipedia. Seller Inventory # 009880

About this Item: Scribner Book Company. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 5.8in. x 1.5in.The Collected Poems of W. B. Yeats includes all of the poems authorized by Yeats for inclusion in his standard canon. Breathtaking in range, it encompasses the entire arc of his career, from luminous reworkings of ancient Irish myths and legends to passionate meditations on the demands and rewards of youth and old age, from exquisite, occasionally whimsical songs of love, nature, and art to somber and angry poems of life in a nation torn by war and uprising. In observing the development of rich and recurring images and themes over the course of his body of work, we can trace the quest of this centurys greatest poet to unite intellect and artistry in a single magnificent vision. Revised and corrected, this edition includes Yeatss own notes on his poetry, complemented by explanatory notes from esteemed Yeats scholar Richard J. Finneran. The Collected Poems of W. B. Yeats is the most comprehensive edition of one of the worlds most beloved poets available in paperback. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

About this Item: Ithaca, Cornell University Press., 1971. First Edition. 14,5 x 21,5 cm. XIV, 361 pages. Original Hardcover in original dustjacket. In protective Mylar. Very good condition with minor signs of external wear. 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 honoured 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. Yeats wrote the introduction for Rabindranath Tagore's Gitanjali, which was published by the India Society. William Butler Yeats was born in Sandymount, Ireland and educated there and in London; he spent his childhood holidays in County Sligo. He studied poetry in his youth and from an early age was fascinated by both Irish legends and the occult. Those topics feature in the first phase of his work, which lasted roughly until the turn of the 20th century. 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. He largely renounced the transcendental beliefs of his youth, though he remained preoccupied with physical and spiritual masks, as well as with cyclical theories of life."

About this Item: Kegan Paul, Trench & Co., London, 1886. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. DULCE COR: Being the POEMS of FORD BERÊTON (pseudonym of SAMUEL RUTHERFORD CROCKETT). LONDON: Kegan Paul, Trench & Co., MDCCCLXXXVI (1886). First Edition. Hardcovers, olive green cloth covered boards lettered in gilt on the front cover and spine, 5x7.5 inches. Pagination: xii, 200 pages. Frontispiece portrait and one plate, both with their tissue guards. This is the FIRST BOOK by the SCOTTISH writer S.R. CROCKETT, b. 1860 d. 1914. It is a collection of poetry written under the pseudonym FORD BERÊTON. The book was published the year Crockett was ordained into the Church of Scotland. It would be seven years later, and after resigning his ministry, that Crockett would begin publishing his famous SCOTTISH STORIES, beginning with his successful THE STICKIT MINISTER. This copy has an IMPORTANT SCOTTISH LITERARY ASSOCIATION, with the penciled ownership SIGNATURE and handwritten ADDRESS of Scottish writer WILLIAM SHARP on the half title page. William Sharp wrote under his name and under the pseudonym of FIONA MACLEOD. He was a contemporary of Samuel Crockett. He was also a contemporary of William Butler Yeats who reportedly liked the writing of Fiona Macleod but not the writing of William Sharp. There is a lovely pictorial bookplate of Albert Harrison on the front pastedown. I have no idea who he might be. VERY GOOD condition, the covers have some wear and rubbing to the spine ends and corner tips, there is foxing here and there, most noticeable on the first and last few pages, the leaf consisting of pages 95/96 is missing its upper corner (probably from being roughly cut open), not affecting text; otherwise tight, bright, clean and unmarked. The penciled signature and handwritten address of William Sharp are clear and legible. About S.R. CROCKETT (from Wikipedia): ******Samuel Rutherford Crockett, b.1859 d.1914, who published under the name S. R. CROCKETT, was a Scottish novelist. After some years of travel, he became in 1886 an Ordained Minister of Penicuik. During the same year as his ordination, his first book, Dulce Cor (Latin: Sweet Heart), a collection of verse under the pseudonym Ford Brereton, was published. That was the only book he published until he abandoned the ministry to become a writer. The success of J. M. Barrie and the Kailyard school of sentimental, homey writing had already created a demand for stories in Lowland Scots, when Crockett published his successful story of The Stickit Minister in 1893. It was followed by a rapidly produced series of popular novels frequently featuring the history of Scotland or his native Galloway. Crockett made considerable sums of money from his writing and was a friend and correspondent of R. L. Stevenson. A substantial number of his works have been republished since the 100th anniversary of his death.****** About WILLIAM SHARP / FIONA MACLEOD (from Wikipedia): ******William Sharp, b.1855 d.1905, was a Scottish writer, of poetry and literary biography in particular, who from 1893 wrote also as Fiona Macleod, a pseudonym kept almost completely secret during his lifetime. Sharp's poem THE LONELY HUNTER inspired the title of Carson McCullers debut novel THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER. His poem contains the lines "Deep in the heart of Summer, sweet is life to me still, But my heart is a lonely hunter, that hunts on a lonely hill". In Disney's 2017 movie production of Beauty and the Beast, Belle recites to the Beast several lines of Sharp's poem A Crystal Forest: "Each branch, each twig, each blade of grass, / Seems clad miraculously with glass".******.

About this Item: London, T.Fisher Unwin Ltd., []., 1922. 8th edition. Octavo. XV, 314 pages. Original Hardcover with beautiful coverdesign by Althea Giles. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. This book from the library of eminent Chief Justice Eric Hallinan. Althea Gyles (1868 – 23 January 1949) was an Irish poet and artist. She is known for her book cover designs for writers such as W. B. Yeats. Margaret Alethea Gyles was born in 1868 at her family home, Kilmurry, County Waterford. George Gyles, her father, was from a promient Anglo-Irish family, and according to W. B. Yeats were "so haughty that their neighbours called them the Royal Family." Her mother, Alithea Emma Gyles, was the daughter of the Bishop of Hereford, Edward Grey. The family moved to Dublin in 1889. Gyles severed ties with her family, and reportedly supported herself by selling a watch and writing a few stories for an Irish paper. At this time she attended an art school on St Stephen's Green. Due to her poor living conditions and poverty, E. J. Dick invited her to live in the "household", a theosophical commune at 3 Ely Place. Others living in there were Dick's wife and George Russell. When W. B. Yeats joined the household in 1891, he described her as "a strange red-haired girl, all whose thoughts were set upon painting and poetry." Gyles fought with the Dicks, returning to "starvation and misery [which] had a large share in her ritual of worship." While living at 53 Mountpleasant Square, she wrote an unpublished novel, The woman without a soul, the plot of which focuses on a black magician. yles left Dublin for London in 1892, where she resumed studying art, firstly at Pedders, and then at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1893. Whilst in London she mixed with writers, including Oscar Wilde, who rated her work highly. Gyles had established a studio at 86 Charlotte Street, Fitzroy Square by 1896. By this time, she was friends with the art critic Lady Colin Campbell and the artist Mabel Dearmer. Gyles's poem, Dew-time, was published in the Pall Mall Magazine in October 1894. She also illustrated the poem, which was influenced by George Russell. In June 1896, her drawing The Offering of Pan appeared in The Commonweal., and in 1897 she illustrated of T. W. Rolleston's Deirdre: the Feis Ceoil Prize Cantata. Around this time she and Yeats' became interested in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the cabbalistic iconography of which influenced her design of the cover of Yeats' book The Secret Rose (1897). She also designed the cover of Poems (1899), and The wind among the reeds (1899). Gyles created a cover design for Father Matthew Russell's The idylls of Killyowen (1898). Both Yeats's and Gyles were acquaintances of Aleister Crowley, with whom Gyles had a romantic affair. Their experiences with magic and astral vision are chronicled by Crowley as his fictional characters with Crowley as Count Swanoff, Gyles as Hypatia Gay, and Yeats' as Will Bute. In 1899, Gyles illustrated Wilde's The Harlot's House, which was published by Leonard Smithers. Gyles became involved with Smithers, which eventually caused Yeats to distance himself from her. Later in 1899, she designed the covers for Ernest Dowson's Decorations, which featured a stylised rose that Yeats described as her "central symbol." She incorporated four swirling birds pecking at a heart between a sun and a moon with stars for the top board of The Night (1900) by John White-Rodyng. By mid-September 1900, Arthur Symons discovered her in an empty room at 15 Granby Place, Hampstead Road, "without a thing in the place, except five books (one a presentation copy from Oscar Wilde) and one or two fantastic gold ornaments which she used to wear; chloral by her side, and the bed strewn with MSS." Gyles had left her library with Yeats previously, to avoid the bailiffs. Symons sold Gyles' poem For a Sepulchre to the Saturday Review. She was recovering from the Hospital for Diseases of the Chest in the City Road when Smithers went bankrupt. She offered S. Seller Inventory # 28256AB

About this Item: London, MacMillan and Co., 1925. 13 cm x 19 cm. 176 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket in protective Mylar. Very good condition. Former library copy with some interesting Patina. Some old newspaper clippings on A.E. taped to the pastetown and endpaper include also a newspaper photograph of the older Russell. The wonderful drawing by A.E. signed in his full name and as A.E. Very Rare ! George William Russell (10 April 1867 – 17 July 1935) who wrote with the pseudonym Æ (sometimes written AE or A.E.), was an Irish writer, editor, critic, poet, artistic painter and Irish nationalist. He was also a writer on mysticism, and a central figure in the group of devotees of theosophy which met in Dublin for many years. Russell was editor from 1905 to 1923 of the Irish Homestead, the journal of the IAOS. His gifts as a writer and publicist gained him a wide influence in the cause of agricultural co-operation. He then became editor of the The Irish Statesman, the paper of the Irish Dominion League, which merged with the Irish Homestead, from 15 September 1923 until 12 April 1930. With the demise of this newspaper he was for the first time of his adult life without a job, and there were concerns that he could find himself in a state of poverty, as he had never earned very much money from his paintings or books. At one point his son Diarmuid was reduced to selling off early drafts of his father's works to raise money, rather to the annoyance of Russell, who accused Diarmuid, with whom his relations were not good, of "raiding the wastepaper baskets". Unbeknownst to him meetings and collections were organized and later that year at Plunkett House he was presented by Father T. Finlay with a cheque for £800. This enabled him to visit the United States the next year, where he was well received all over the country and his books sold in large numbers. His first book of poems, Homeward: Songs by the Way (1894), established him in what was known as the Irish Literary Revival, where Æ met the young James Joyce in 1902 and introduced him to other Irish literary figures, including William Butler Yeats. He appears as a character with Lizzie Twigg in the "Scylla and Charybdis" episode of Joyce's Ulysses, where he dismisses Stephen's theories on Shakespeare. His collected poems was published in 1913, with a second edition in 1926. His house at 17 Rathgar Avenue in Dublin became a meeting-place[8] at the time for everyone interested in the economic and artistic future of Ireland: his Sunday evenings "at home" were a notable feature of Dublin literary life. Michael Collins, the effective leader of the new Government, became acquainted with Russell in the last months of his life: Oliver St. John Gogarty, a regular guest at Russell's Sundays "at home" believed that these two men, so utterly unalike in most ways, nonetheless developed a deep mutual respect. Russell's generosity and hospitality were legendary: Frank O'Connor fondly recalled "the warmth and kindness, which enfolded you like an old fur coat". He was the most loyal of friends, and in the notoriously fractious Dublin literary world Russell tried to keep the peace between his endlessly quarrelling colleagues: even the abrasive Seamus O'Sullivan could be forgiven a great deal, simply because "Seamus drinks too much". His interests were wide-ranging; he became a theosophist and wrote extensively on politics and economics, while continuing to paint and write poetry. Æ claimed to be a clairvoyant, able to view various kinds of spiritual beings, which he illustrated in paintings and drawings. He was noted for his exceptional kindness and generosity towards younger writers: Frank O'Connor termed him "the man who was the father to three generations of Irish writers", and Patrick Kavanagh called him "a great and holy man". P.L. Travers, famous as the creator of Mary Poppins, was yet another writer who gratefully recalled Russell's help and encouragement. He used the pseudonym "AE", or more properly, "Æ".

About this Item: Elkin Mathews & John Lane, London, 1894. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Hardcover. Scarce. One of 650 copies. Presentation copy from the publisher John Lane, inscribed in pencil to the Irish poet and novelist Katharine Tynan Hinkson: "Mrs. Hinkson with the publisher's regards." Presentation and association copies of the two books of the Rhymers' Club are extremely uncommon. The Rhymers' Club, founded in 1890 by the young William Butler Yeats and Ernest Rhys, was a group of London-based poets, Originally it was not much more than a dining club, meeting in pubs, Those who took part included Ernest Dowson, Lionel Johnson, Francis Thompson, Richard Le Gallienne, John Gray, John Davidson, Edwin J. Ellis, Victor Plarr, Selwyn Image, Lord Alfred Douglas, Arthur Cecil Hillier, John Todhunter, G.A. Greene, Arthur Symons, Ernest Radford, and Thomas William Rolleston. Oscar Wilde attended some meetings that were held in private homes. The group as a whole matched quite closely Yeats' retrospective idea of 'the tragic generation', destined for failure and in many cases early death. Along with the social element of the Rhymers' Club, they published two volumes of verse. The first, titled The Book of the Rhymers' Club was published by Elkin Mathews in 1892. The Second Book of the Rhymers' Club, with five poems by Yeats, appeared two years later in 1894, published by the recently merged Elkin Mathews and John Lane. They had print runs of 450 and 650 respectively. By the time Arthur Ransome wrote his Bohemia in London in 1907, the group had long passed into legend." Bound in original brown cloth with gilt title to spine. Light browning to margins of interior pages. With bookplates of writer J.G.E. Hopkins, culinary writer Helmut Lothar Ripperger, and collector Mark Samuels Lasner. Very good condition. POE/080715. Seller Inventory # 28538

Bound in publisher’s blue buckram with gilt pictorial covers designed by Aubrey Beardsley.

Mild rubbing to corners. Head- and tail-pieces bumped. Vol. I 108, in which the Christmas-card has been tipped, is detached. Edges of text-block browned, otherwise remarkably clean. Beardsley’s gilt designs to the covers are quite fresh. A splendid set, utterly unsophisticated. Conceived by Symons, Beardsley and Smithers (the publisher infamous for his pornography), "The Savoy" features short stories, poems, essays and reviews, along with many illustrations (thirty-two by Beardsley, ten by William Blake), from bright names in the late-XIXc firmament: Symons and Beardsley, George Bernard Shaw, William Butler Yeats, Max Beerbohm, Havelock Ellis, Joseph Conrad, Ford Madox Heuffer (later Ford), Paul Verlaine, Ernest Dowson and Edmund Gosse inter alia. Swimming against the current of criticism that continues today, Symons in the first issue articulates the periodical’s modus operandi: "We have no formulas, and we desire no false unity of form or matter. We have not invented a new point of view. We are not Realists, or Romanticists, or Decadents. For us, all art is good which is good art." (Vol. I, p. [5].) To be sure, "Decadent" is the easiest label for the publication, but it is by no means indulgent. Still, its reception by the public was not as warm as that by the critics. Initially quarterly, it accelerated to monthly by the second half of the year, whence the eight issues. Symons in his editorial note to the final issue (vol. III, p. [7]) announces the publication of the three-volume set with Beardsley-designed covers, of which the present item is an example. It was an efflorescence that could not persist; even so, it leaves us with Havelock Ellis’s immortally wise words about populism: "For it may be a foolish fancy, but I do not like drinking at those pools which are turbid from the hooves of my fellow creatures; when I cannot get there before the others I like to wait until a considerable time after they have left. I could not read my Catullus in peace if I had an uneasy sense that thousands of my fellow creatures were writing to the newspapers to say what a nice girl Lesbia was, and how horrid a person Gellius, condescending to approve the poet’s fraternal sentiments, lamenting the unwholesome tone of his Atys."

About this Item: 1916. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Autograph album containing numerous autographs including a signed quotation from W B Yeats: "Only the wasteful virtues earn the sun" W B Yeats April 25 1916. The quotation is from Yeats' own poem 'Responsibilities,' 1914 and is DATED ON THE SECOND DAY OF THE EASTER RISING, which only lasted for six days. At the time of the Rising, Yeats was staying at Iles Farm, Far Oakridge, near Stroud, Gloucestershire, the home of the artist William Rothenstein (later Sir William).

Below this is a quotation from Ben Johnson, dated on the same day, by Lalla Vandervelde, wife of the Belgian statesman Emile Vandervelde. Lalla Vandervelde organised séances and had met Yeats through their mutual interest in spiritualism. According to Yeats' biographer R F Foster they 'had a dalliance.' Her memoirs are entitled 'Monarchs and Millionaires' (Thornton Butterworth, 1925.) The third inscription on the page is a quotation from Dante by Percy Dearmer, author of The Parson's Handbook and musical editor of The English Hymnal (1906) and Songs of Praise (1926). The last signature on the page is of the novelist John Galsworthy, signed at Far Oakridge, where he was a frequent guest of William Rothenstein. Other signatures in the album date from 1895 to 1920 and include Tita Brand and Violet V Boucher, actresses; Field-Marshall George Stuart White, VC, hero of Ladysmith, awarded the VC during the Indian Mutiny; Theo Marzials, eccentric poet, one page poem; Eugen Sandow, strongman; Max Beerbohm, cartoonist, with a drawing of the prime minister; Horace G Hutchinson, golf writer; Emile Vandervelde, Belgian statesman; a drawing by J Maurice Rothenstein (son of William and later a director of the Tate Gallery) is loosely inserted; and there are several inscriptions from soldiers wounded at Mons, Cambrai and Ypres.
