STEPHENS, James. Insurrections.


1 in stock

STEPHENS, James. Insurrections. Dublin: Maunsel, 1909. First edition. pp. 55. Quarter linen on papered boards, title printed in brown on upper cover and in ink on spine. Inscribed on front endpaper “to Joseph Plunkett / from / James Stephens” and at bottom of page Stephens relates “bought it himself JS”. Some mild soiling to upper cover, toning to front and rear endpaper. A very good copy.

One of the most versatile and under-rated writers of the Irish literary movement. Raised in an orphanage, he was a friend of Arthur Griffith and wrote for ‘Sinn Fein’; after 1924 he lived in London. His poetry, children’s stories and political writing are all distinguished by their integrity and freshness of approach.
