The Weird of Fionavar


Young, Ella. Dublin: The Talbot Press, 1922. 1st edition. Brown pictorial wraps. 18mo. Very good. 

An uncommon, very hard-to-find booklet from a noted Dublin poet, featuring a series of exotic poems. Brown stapled wraps. Touch of shelf wear but mainly in very fine condition otherwise.

Ella Young (26 December 1867 – 23 July 1956) was an Irish poet and Celtic mythologist active in the Gaelic and Celtic Revival literary movement of the late 19th and early 20th century.[1] Born in Ireland, Young was an author of poetry and children’s books. She emigrated from Ireland to the United States in 1925 as a temporary visitor and lived in California. For five years, she gave speaking tours on Celtic mythology at American universities, and in 1931, she was involved in a publicized immigration controversy when she attempted to become a citizen.
