Being the Fourth Chapter of the Songs of Connacht, Collected and Translated. [Preface by W. B. Yeats.]Dundrum: The Dun Emer Press, 1904 Stock Code: 144499
First edition, first impression, one of 300 copies only, this copy has a rare single-sheet prospectus advertising the press, dated January 1905, loosely inserted. This is the third of 11 books published by Yeats and his sister Elizabeth under this imprint, renamed the Cuala Press in 1908, after the Gaelic name of the south Dublin area before the Norman conquest.
Octavo. Original beige linen-backed blue paper-covered boards, titles printed in black on paper labels to spine and front board, matching blue endpapers, untrimmed, partly unopened.
Limitation, dedication, and colophon printed in red.
Binding a little toned, two small dents to top edge of rear board, minor loss to spine label, the binding otherwise firm and square, free endpapers toned, else internally fresh and unmarked; a very good copy indeed.
