Churchtown, Dundrum: Cuala Press, 1910. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/near fine. Grey paper boards with linen spine, paper spine label, in plain dust jacket; 8vo. 33 pp. One of 400 copies. Lily Yeats' copy, signed by her on the first blank, and with her Jack Butler Yeats designed bookplate on the front pastedown. Offsetting to free grey endpapers endemic to this title, tiny nick to label, else fine and unopened. Lacking errata slip. As nice a copy as one could expect, in the uncommon unprinted white jacket which is a bit wrinkled and worn at edges. Exceptional family association. Wade 84. Lily [Susan] Yeats was William Butler's sister and daughter of J. B. Yeats. While her sister Elizabeth ran the Cuala Press, Lily founded and ran the embroidery/needlework arm (W. B. Y's wife helped her). Both sisters studied with William Morris and his daughter, and were central figures (and among the few women) in the Arts and Crafts Movement as well as the Irish Renaissance.
