Notes:O'Shea states "that this is very likely the copy described at Wade 17 as belonging to Mr. O'Hegarty and perhaps used as a rehearsal copy for the first production of the Irish Literary Theatre. Wade states accurately that the type of this copy seems to be that of the main entry for Wade 17, Poems, 1899. But the evidence of the VAR. suggests that the text here is not Wade 17 but Wade 15, Poems, 1895 and the revision in this copy were followed in Wade 18, Poems, 1901."

Manuscript revisions and corrections and stage directions (some WBY's, some in another hand, also typescript pasted in).
