Frontispiece, (2), vii, (1 blank), 247, (1) pp. Original white and blue boards with paper-label on spine, matching blue endpapers and roughtrimmed edges. No dustjacket. The spine is slightly toned and has some light scrape marks and insignificant dampstains. Spine ends and corners are a bit bumped. There is a mended tear in the paper on front board. Contents are perfectly bright and clean. 'The Trembling of the Veil' is the main source of Yeats?s intellectual autobiography and is regarded as his major undertaking as a prose writer. Arthur Symons has described the work as ?an absolute masterpiece: far & away the best thing [Yeats] has ever done.? (Arthur Symons: A Life, p. 304). This is no. 116 of 1000 numbered and signed copies. Yeats has also made a manual change in the title of Book III, where ?Hodos Camelionis? has become ?Hodos Chameleontos? Inscribed by Yeats to his Swedish publisher Thorsten Laurin the year after he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature: ?T. Laurin from W B Yeats, with all friendly wishes / Jan. 21 1924? With Laurin?s gilt stamped bookplate on front pastedown. Laurin (1875-1954), distinguished art collector and director of Norstedts publishing house. Norstedts published a Swedish edition of five plays by Yeats in 1923, including 'Cathleen ni Houlihan', the work by Yeats which was particularly regarded as a masterpiece by the Nobel Prize Committee.
