Catalogue Note

An early monograph on Jack B. Yeats, presented by the subject to his friend and collaborator John Masefield (1878-1967). The volume includes some printed verse by Masefield although Marriott notes 'I am not at liberty to announce who wrote these heroic verses but I may say that the "pirate" responsible is now a famous poet, novelist, dramatist, and sea-historian'.
