He suffered from Hodgkin's disease, a form of cancer which at the time was untreatable. He died just weeks shy of his 38th birthday. Yeats says of Synge, "He was a drifting silent man full of hidden passion, and loved wild islands, because there, set out in the light of day, he saw what lay hidden in himself." Crème colored cloth spine and paper boards. Bottom on spine has a small dampstain, otherwise very good or better. SIGNED BY YEATS, THOUGH NOT CALLED FOR.
