Seller ID: 1368
Dublin: Dolmen Press, 1953. First edition, limited to 25 numbered large paper copies signed by Milne and 175 numbered ordinary copies of which this copy is #100 (unpaginated [19 pp.], list of publications). Tall octavo (23cm) in plain, light-green boards; vigorous decorations by Mia Cranwell, set in Poliphilus type, printed and bound by hand. The ninth publication by Liam Miller's Dolmen Press (1951- 1987). The Irish poet Ewart Milne (1903- 1987) was among the writers in the generation which followed W. B. Yeats and served with the international Spanish Medical Aid during that country's civil war; he gradually divested himself of his early communist idealism and, as many writers and intellectuals of his time, took on conservative views. A good bibliography together with a brief biographical sketch can be found on the Princess Grace Irish Library site (pgil-eirdata.org). Plain green covers sunned at the edges; otherwise a fine, bright copy. A rare item.
