Lawrence & Bullen, 1897. First edition, first issue with Lawrence & Bullen at the base of the spine. Original dark blue cloth with elaborate gilt design by Althea Gyles to the upper cover and spine. A good copy , Seven full page plates after pieces by Jack Yeats. One of the author's best known works of prose, drawing upon Celtic mythology. It takes its title from the love poem that Yeats prefaces the book with. "To the Secret Rose". The famous cover for The Secret Rose was designed for Yeats by Althea Gyles. It "was intended to make the book resemble a grimoire. At its center is a four-petalled rose joined to a cross, occupying a place just below the middle of the tree. The boughs of the tree resemble a serpent's folds; among them, just above the rose, are the kissing faces of a man and a woman." It signifies "the conjunction of Rose and Cross, and of man and woman, in the midst of the serpentine folds of the Tree of Life. The three roses at the top represent the three principal states of being (Sephiroth) of the Kabbalistic Tree, and the skeleton at the bottom represents the lowest state of being or nature." - Richard Ellmann, The Identity of Yeats (London: Faber, 1968), Size: 8vo.
