First editions, first impressions, both limited to 400 copies, of these two at-times-epigrammatic selections from the letters of artist John Butler Yeats (1839–1922) to his son the poet William Butler Yeats. The first collection, selected by Ezra Pound, deals with letters 1911-1916, the second, by Lennox Robinson, selects those from 1916-1920. Yeats’s father is noted as having had a strong formative influence on the thinking of his son.

2 works, octavo. Original holland boards, titles to front boards in black. Binder’s ticket to each. Titles labels tanned, pencil mark to rear board of the first work, covers of the second work somewhat faded, slight discolouration along board edges, still in excellent condition.
