Notes

First edition, first impression, a lovely copy, uncommon in the jacket.

This collection contains Yeats's plays: Cathleen ni Houlihan, The Pot of Broth, The King's Threshold, On Baile's Strand, The Shadowy Waters, Deridre, The Unicorn from the Stars (written in collaboration with Lady Gregory), The Green Helmet, The Hour-Glass and The Player Queen. 1,500 copies were printed, and they do not often survive in the jacket, especially not in such excellent condition.
