Quarter linen, paper boards light wear to spine, otherwise a near fine copy. Housed in slipcase. Signed by W.B. Yeats on the title-page. [Wade162]. It was his famous first meeting with the poet W.B. Yeats that turned John Millington Synge into a legend of the Irish Literary Revival. The death of the playwright in 1909 dominated Yeats's journals for many months afterwards. First published here by the Cuala Press, they were later added to the canon of his Autobiographies.
