Eight Irish Writers. A Series of Eight Charcoal Drawings. Printed by collotype lithography on Rives paper by the Imprimerie Arte Adrien Maeght, Paris, in an Individually Numbered and Signed Edition of 100 Copies with 25 copies hors commerce.Text edited by Andrew Carpenter, Preface by Seamus Heaney [Dublin 1981]. The writers pictured are William Butler Yeats, John Millington Synge, James Joyce, Francis Stuart, Samuel Beckett, Thomas Kinsella, John Montague, and Seamus Heaney. Each lithograph individually signed and numbered 36/100, each loose within an individual folder, the entire in original sturdy folding cloth box, oatmeal, titled in white. The box a little faded with a few marks, foxing to title leaf, but generally a fine set of a superb production by an artist widely acclaimed for his evocative "Portrait Heads" of literary figures and fellow artists. Curiously, no publisher or designer is named; presumably Le Brocquy was himself the publisher/designer.
