Bright blue-green cloth, with gilt-stamped design by Althea Gyles on spine and blind-stamped design on upper and lower cover. Signed and dated by W.B. Yeats, Dec. 6, 1922 on printed announcement of the talk given by Yeats at Rushworth Hall in Liverpool, suggesting that this edition was for sale in the lecture hall on the night. With slip pasted to front endpaper. A fresh fine copy. Rare in this condition. Emeritus Professor Warwick Gould states “The slip is especially valuable, confirming as it does the lecturing agency and admission price. W.B. Yeats stayed overnight with James Granville Legge at 3 Grove Park. I believe the lecture was on ‘My Own Poetry’, but have yet to uncover a notice or review of it in the Liverpool papers. Valuable, too, is the information that this was a first issue 1922 copy. Wade does not say when either the first or the second issue of 1922 took place. A recent message from Ed Maggs of Maggs Bros. in London points out that they have another copy of the book, evidently signed at the same lecture.
