Few poets revised as frequently or extensively as did Yeats. This volume contains variant wordings from a wide range of published sources, from the first appearance of individual poems to their final appearance in various collections, each footnoted with Yeats' emendations. With an appendix containing Yeats' own notes regarding the poems. As was occasionally the case with popular authors, Yeats signed his name to a number of specially printed sheets to be tipped into publications after his death. Without original acetate and slipcase. Wade 211N.

A fine signed copy.
