Notes

First edition thus - a collection of Yeats's poems entitled Responsibilities was first published by the Cuala Press in 1914, but this London edition was significantly different, printing the 31 poems of the 1914 edition but adding "The Well and Tree", together with 19 poems from The Green Helmet (Cuala Press, 1910) and two poems from the New York edition of 1912, as well as The Hour-Glass, 1912. Rare in the jacket, exceedingly rare in the glassine.
