The Shadowy Waters.
First edition, first impression, one of 500 copies printed, of Yeats’s lyrical, visionary play which tells a story of love between Forgael, a dreamer-pirate, and Dectora, a proud queen whose ship he captures.
Quarto. Original blue vertical-grain cloth, titles to spine, flower design to front board, and top edge gilt, bevelled boards. Cloth a little rubbed, wear to extremities, faint spotting and tanning to endpapers, two small tape shadows to front free endpaper, occasional light finger mark to contents. An excellent copy.
