Notes

First edition, first impression, one of only 300 copies printed. This collection, finely printed by Yeats's sister Elizabeth C. Yeats, collects the best of Yeats's love poetry, including He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven and Adam's Curse. Elizabeth's "clearly legible, slender volumes with their distinctive paper labels may be seen as the sole survivors of the handcrafted ideal established in 1900 by Walker and T. J. Cobden-Sanderson's Doves Press" (ODNB).
