Notes

Signed limited edition, number 18 of 100 large paper copies signed by Synge and Yeats, and with plates hand-coloured by the artist. This book, based on the author's annual visits to the islands prompted by W. B. Yeats, would become the "the great prose manifesto of the Irish literary revival" (ODNB).

From the Penzance Library, the only independent library of Cornwall, established in 1818 in Penzance's Morrab Gardens, and now the Morrab Library, with the debossed stamps (with occasional neat perforation) of the Penzance Library to title, page 100 and the last page (not affecting any illustrated plates).
