Poems. London: Fisher Unwin, 1912.  Sixth revised edition. Richly decorated in gilt, in a binding designed by Althea Gyles. Covers in clean bright condition, neat gift inscription to front free endpaper (dated Christmas 1912); light browning to prelinenary leaves, contents bright and clean throughout. First appearance in this famous binding was in 1899 to which Yeats had revised and rewrote 'the Wanderings of Oisin' & ' The Countess Cathleen. The binding, is known as the second ‘golden design’ by Althea Gyles. Gyles was an artist and writer who lived an obscure, bohemian and tragic life. Her chief surviving work is the series of covers she designed for the books of W.B. Yeats. Her designs capture the spirit of Yeats’s passion for the occult and for symbolism. Not only is the design inspired, but also the execution is superlative. Copies often retain remarkably bright gilt on well-preserved blue cloth. Gyles also designed covers for ‘The Secret Rose’ and ‘The Wind Among the Reed’s
