Item #14955 WHEELS AND BUTTERFLIES. W. B. Yeats.


London: Macmillan and Co., 1934. Original bright blue-green cloth, with dust jacket.

First Edition, which consisted of 3000 copies -- dedicated to Lady Gregory, co-founder of the Abbey Theatre, who had died in 1932. This volume consists of four plays that had appeared onstage at the Abbey Theatre -- "The Words upon the Window-pane," "Fighting the Waves," "The Resurrection" and "The Cat and the Moon." "Fighting the Waves" appears in book form here for the first time; the other three had appeared only as numbers of the Cuala Press, but are here accompanied by long Introductions written by Yeats for this book. The final section of the book is the music, by George Antheil, for "Fighting the Waves."

This volume is in fine condition, the leaves still unopened; the dust jacket is just about fine as well (a few stray marks). Wade 175. Item #14955

Price: $275.00
