Description

In 2002, the Yeats family made a generous Heritage Donation to the National Library of Ireland. With additions as well as subtractions, most books listed in Edward O’Shea’s A Descriptive Catalog of W. B. Yeats’s Library (1985) were transferred to the National Library. The present volume is a first step toward a comprehensive book of Yeats’s annotations. By inventorying the complete collection, The W. B. and George Yeats Library: A Short-title Catalog cross-lists images of copied and inserted material. Supplementary lists are incorporated into this fully indexed edition, which is enhanced by more than a dozen illustrations and an appendix to underscore growth of the poet’s personal library in the 115 years since the public first glimpsed it in 1904.
