An Occasional Review.
First editions, first impressions, of the complete run of Yeats’s theatrical periodical. Yeats’s contributions include: “Windlestraws”, “Cathleen ni Hoolihan”, “The Reform of the Theatre”, “The Dramatic Movement” and “Literature and the Living Voice”.
Octavo. First four issues bound without wrappers in contemporary green cloth with titles to spine and front board gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Last three issues in buff card wrappers printed in black as issued. Black and white portrait frontispiece to each issue and three other plates. Portraits by J. B. Yeats include William and Frank Fay, J. M. Synge. Small contemporary signature to front free endpaper of bound copies; tiny ballpoint pen inscription to initial leaf of one of the wrappered copies. Spine and board edges of binging rubbed, spine browned, wrappers rubbed and with a few small chips and closed tears, light sporadic foxing to contents. An excellent set.
