DRAMATIS PERSONAE 1896 - 1902.
The Macmillan Company, New York 1936 - Green cloth, stamped in gilt. Frontis portrait after a painting by Augustus John. Very good in chipped dust jacket. First edition (preceding the UK edition by three days). Inscribed in the year of publication: "A.E.F. Horniman from her friend WB Yeats. 1936." Horniman, the daughter of a wealthy tea merchant, joined the Order of the Golden Dawn in January 1890, the context in which she first met Yeats. In later years, Horniman was the primary patron of the Abbey Theatre and served, for a time, as Yeats's amanuensis. For a substantial account of her connection with Yeats, see pp. 709-713 of LETTERS III. This presentation coincided with the end of almost twenty-five years of estrangement between Yeats and Horniman. WADE 186.
