1919 The Wild Swans at Coole
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding
A first edition of W.B. Yeats' collection The Wilde Swans at Coole. One of the foremost figures of twentieth century literature, the Irish poet, dramatist, writer and politician became a pillar of the Irish literary establishment and helped to found the Abbey Theatre. Comprised of forty poems, this collection represents the middle stage of Yeats' writing, and discusses themes of Irish nationalism and the creation of an Irish aesthetic. The faint trace of the prior owner's ink inscription can be found to the half title. The book previously belonged to Monica Dolphin.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, sound. Lightly rubbed to the boards, with some marks at the rear board.

Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and generally clean with the odd handling mark.
