YEATS, W.B.

YEATS, W.B. The Countess Kathleen And Various Legends and Lyrics

T. Fisher Unwin, 1892.

First edition. Publisher's quarter parchment over olive green boards, titled to spine with the 'Cameo Series' emblem to the upper cover. Engraved frontispiece by T.J. Nettleship. A near fine copy with just a little toning to the spine and pushing to the corners, but an exceptionally clean, crisp copy of a fragile book. Internally fresh and mainly unopened.

One of 500 copies. The Countess Kathleen is Yeats's second collection, containing the titular play and some of his best early verse including "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" and "Apologia addressed to Ireland in the coming days", described by Yeats's biographer, R.E. Foster as "the most powerful poetic rhetoric which he had yet written... Pace, inventiveness, rhythm and audacity struck the note already identified as uniquely Yeatsian; it also announced his arrival as a frankly political poet." - (W. B. Yeats: A Life)
