YEATS, Jack B.. Irishmen All by George A. Birmingham. (WITH ALS INCLUDING AN ORIGINAL SKETCH)


1 in stock

With twelve coloured illustrations, tipped in, from oil paintings by Jack B. Yeats. London: T.N. Foulis, 1913. Demy octavo. First edition. pp. [viii], 225, 6 (publisher’s list). Original green buckram, title in gilt on upper cover and spine. Loosely inserted is an autograph letter signed from Jack B. Yeats, with an original sketch by him of a horse running. Mild foxing to prelims. Top edge gilt. A very good copy.
A very successful collaboration. The subtle observation and gentle irony of Birmingham’s (i.e. Canon Hannay’s) prose is well matched by the Yeats paintings, which date from the beginning of his work in oils.
