In the Seven Woods. Being Poems Chiefly of the Irish Heroic Age
The Dun Emer Press, Dundrum, 1903. The Dun Emer Press, Dundrum, 1903. First Edition, first printing [one of 325 copies]. 8vo. 63pp. Off-white linen with paper title label but only tiny remnants of the spine label. Cloth a little soiled and tanned and with a tiny ink mark to base of spine. Endpapers lightly browned. From the library of Lady Alix (Alice Constance) Egerton, with her autograph signature to front endpaper. Thirteen poems, printed in black and occasionally in red. A very good copy of a most uncommon book, the first publication of the Dun Emer (later Cuala) Press, run by Yeats sister. Wade (49) notes that Yeats inscribed John Quinn's copy of this work as follows: "the first book of mine that it is a pleasure to look at - a pleasure whether open or shut". The daughter of the Third Earl of Ellesmere, Lady Egerton edited facsimile editions of the Ellesmere Chaucer and Milton's 'Comus' and was herself the author of several volumes of poetry and a mystery play entitled 'The Werewolf'.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.
