Notes

First edition, first impression. Number 386 of 500 copies. A collection of letters from Shaw and Yeats to Florence Farr (1860-1917), a London-based actress of great beauty and dynamism. She was deeply involved with both Yeats and Bernard Shaw, both theatrically (acting in plays written by them, often specifically for her) and romantically (more with Shaw than Yeats, for whom she was more muse than lover).
