signed first edition 12mo., white-linen cloth & printed brown boards; 39 pages
1907 · Dublin
by COLUM, Padriac
Dublin: Maunsel & Company, Ltd., 1907. True First Edition. With an autograph verse quotation signed by Colum from his poem "Poor Scholar Of The Forties" on the dedication page: "Years hence in rustic speech a phrase, As in wild earth a Grecian vase. Padriac Colum." A long shot but the dedication page is to AE [George William Russell] and this inscription is above and below his name. Colum usually added the recipient's name when inscribing this poem and not normally on the dedication page. [See image]. No proof- just wishful thinking!. 12mo., white-linen cloth & printed brown boards; 39 pages. Very Good (some soiling & minor spotting cloth, with some browning spine, few tiny indentations front cover; contents clean & tight, light browning endpapers).
