A near-fine copy in the jacket

First edition, first impression of Yeats's follow-up collection to The Tower, containing some of his best, and most difficult, poems, such as "Blood and the Moon", "A Dialogue of Self and Soul", "Vacillation", and, of course, "Byzantium", and thus full of "those images that yet / fresh images beget; / that dolphin-torn, and gong tormented sea".

A smaller collection, notably lacking the famous "Byzantium", under the same title (but without "and Other Poems") had been printed in New York in 1929.
