The Tower.London, Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1928 Stock Code: 134740
NotesFirst edition, first impression, an exceptional copy in the jacket, of what is generally accepted to be Yeats's single most important collection. The Tower includes many of Yeats's greatest and most enduring poems, including "Sailing to Byzantium", "Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen", "Leda and the Swan", and "Among School Children".
Octavo. Original olive green cloth, spine and front cover lettered and decorated in gilt, top edge trimmed, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Housed in a blue buckram-backed custom folding case.
A genuinely fine copy, uncut and untouched but for the most trivial rubbing at spine corners and tips.
