First edition. 8vo., original blue cloth, lettered in gilt, with the publisher's monogram blind-stamped on the lower cover. London, Kegan Paul Trench & Co.
The author's second book, preceded only by the legendary Mosada. The first substantial work by Yeats himself, this is one of only 500 copies printed after the publisher had insisted on at least 200 subscribers before publication could commence. Wade 2. Two neat contemporary inscriptions on the verso of the front free endpaper and first blank, otherwise an excellent copy, with only minimal rubbing to the extremities and slight fading to the gilt on the spine.
