Pomes Penyeach

Paris, Shakespeare and Company, 1927.

Duodecimo (122 × 95 mm), [24] pages (including the initial blank page and the terminal blank leaf) plus an errata slip tipped in on the blank page facing the colophon.

Pale green papered boards lettered in dark green; spine lightly rubbed at the ends; covers a little sunned about the spine, with a couple of small marks at the rear; an excellent copy (internally fine) of a fragile production.

This short collection of poems was sold for 12 pennies (1 shilling) or 12 francs and contains 13 poems, hence 'Pomes Penyeach' (the thirteenth poem being the 'tilly', the Irish term for the thirteenth item in a 'baker's dozen' and also the title of the first poem).

Slocum and Cahoon 24 (giving a publication date of 5 July 1927). A deluxe issue of thirteen copies on handmade paper was also produced.
