Deirdre of the Sorrows. A Play.
New York: printed for John Quinn,, 1910. Octavo. Original cream cloth-backed paper boards, printed paper labels to spine and front cover. A fine copy. First edition, one of only five surviving copies printed on handmade paper. This edition consisted of 45 copies on paper, and five on vellum; however, Quinn was unhappy with the number of errors that crept in during the printing, and destroyed all but five copies on paper and five on vellum. The play had been left unfinished at Synge's death in 1909; W. B. Yeats helped to finish it, contributed the preface, and had it performed at the Abbey Theatre, which Yeats and Synge had founded together.
