Thomas Bird Mosher : pirate prince of publishers : a comprehensive bibliography & source guide to the Mosher books, reflecting England's national literature & design by Philip R Bishop( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mosher was one of America's most original and controversial publishers, denounced as "literary pirate" by some, yet praised as "Prince of Publishers" by others. This revealing work unravels the unique publishing story behind the piracy slanders and more." "This study not only provides abundant new primary research, including new evidence on royalties paid, but also presents its contents in a novel way. An overview with tables and graphs and a set of appendices cross-referenced with the primary bibliography, now augmented with two checklists of publications by Mosher's "successors"." "The opening section is particularly useful in clearly presenting the various series, privately printed books, and books printed on vellum. The full color illustrated section on binding adds yet another dimension showing the respect Mosher's imprints command. Acclaims and criticisms of Mosher's publishing balance the record. A descriptive index, and an annotated and cross-referenced bibliography on Mosher himself, round out this work's strengths." "Bishop's work is recommended for literary scholars, students of literature, libraries, special collections departments, bibliographers, graphic arts historians, collectors, rare book dealers, and to all book lovers interested in the history of the book."--BOOK JACKET

Yeats's mask by Warwick Gould( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yeats's Mask, Yeats Annual No. 19 is a special issue in this renowned research-level series. Fashionable in the age of Wilde, the Mask changes shape until it emerges as Mask in the system of A Vision. Chronologically tracing the concept through Yeats's plays and those poems written as 'texts for exposition' of his occult thought which flowers in A Vision itself (1925 and 1937), the volume also spotlights 'The Mask before The Mask' numerous plays including Cathleen Ni-Houlihan, The King's Threshold, Calvary, The Words upon the Window-pane, A Full Moon in March and The Death of Cuchulain. There are excurses into studies of Yeats's friendship with the Oxford don and cleric, William Force Stead, his radio broadcasts, the Chinese contexts for his writing of 'Lapis Lazuli'. His self-renewal after The Oxford Book of Modern Verse, and the key occult epistolary exchange 'Leo Africanus', edited from MSS by Steve L. Adams and George Mills Harper, is republished from the elusive Yeats Annual No. 1 (1982). The essays are by David Bradshaw, Michael Cade-Stewart, Aisling Carlin, Warwick Gould, Margaret Mills Harper, Pierre Longuenesse, Jerusha McCormack, Neil Mann, Emilie Morin, Elizabeth Müller and Alexandra Poulain, with shorter notes by Philip Bishop and Colin Smythe considering Yeats's quatrain upon remaking himself and the pirate editions of The Land of Heart's Desire. Ten reviews focus on various volumes of the Cornell Yeats MSS Series, his correspondence with George Yeats, and numerous critical studies
