First "definitive" edition of Yeats's collected poems. 8vo. Two volumes. Number 142 of 375 sets printed on Glastonbury Ivory Toned Antique Laid paper and signed by the author. Publisher's green buckram, lettered and decorated gilt. Top edge gilt. Frontispiece portrait to each volume, the first by John S. Sargent and the second by Augustus John. A near fine set, spines slightly faded and spotted. The glassine jackets are creased and chipped, but have preserved the books very well indeed.

For some time before his death, W. B. Yeats was engaged in revising the text of this edition of his poems, of which he had corrected the the proofs. (Wade)
The limitation sheets, signed by the author before his death in 1939, were retained by the publisher until the publication of this edition following the end of the Second World War.
