ON THE BOILER.

Dublin: Cuala Press, 1938. Jack B Yeata. 2nd edition. Paperback. Small 4to. Here, Yeats depicts the collapse of his paradigm for Ireland's renewal through culture and discerns the seeds for a new cultural movement rooted in education and eugenics. For Yeats, cultural nationalism had the potential to unite the nation under the leadership of the Anglo-Irish. Oversize blue wrappers. Front cover printed in black designed by Jack B Yeats (includes an illustration by him). 46pp with publisher ad on front of last page and on the verso of the back cover. The first edition was destroyed (except for 4 copies), so this issue could be considered the first edition. Price printed on front cover, "Three Shillings and Sixpence".
