The Coming of Lugh

Dublin: Maunsel & Co. 1909.

First printing. Item #763

Good in wraps; split at the fold, with a well-intentioned but somewhat clumsy repair. Moderate overall edgewear. This copy with the ownership signature on the title page of Patrick McCartan, the Irish nationalist and politician who had a close and affectionate relationship with Yeats, which is documented in the book "Yeats and Patrick McCartan: A Fenian Frendship." The relationship between Gonne and Yeats is of course so well known as to forebear mention; but it's interesting to speculate, given the nature of the friendship between Yeats and McCartan, how this book came into McCartan's hands.

Price: $250.00
