About This Item

London: A.H. Bullen, 1904. Cloth backed boards, paper spine label, edges untrimmed. Spine label darkened and soiled, minor soiling to edges, a trace of foxing to endsheets, but a very good copy. Half morocco slipcase. First British edition. An important association copy, inscribed by Yeats in the month of publication on the front free endsheet: "George Russell from his friend the writer -- March, 1904". During his life, Yeats formed few literary friendships from which he received as much as he gave. One of the foremost was his association with the poet George William Russell. "A.E. was my oldest friend," he confided to an admirer on Russell's death in 1935, "We began our work together." WADE 53.
