W.B. Yeats Collection|
Queen's University, Douglas Library, W.D. Jordan Special Collections and Music Library
Yeats, W.B.; Irish literature
The collection was established in the 1950s. Intensive collecting began with the appointment of two professors with an interest in Anglo-Irish literature to the Department of English. A grant has helped build the collection.
The collection is complemented by the Yeats' family set of Dun Emer and Cuala Press imprints; scarce first editions; the Darwin Yarish Collection of George William Russell (AE), and strong holdings in Anglo-Irish literature [Monk Gibbon, Katharine Tynan and others]. The present acquisition policy is to acquire any Cuala Press imprints not already in the collection. Secondary material and reference works are added regularly when available.
516 monographs; 3 serials currently received. Supplementary material to support this collection will be found in the mainstacks collection.
The collection is catalogued on-line. LC subject headings and classification are used. Items catalogued before June 1980 and after February 1990 are recorded in the National Library Union Catalogue. Special bibliographies and/or data bases include "imprint" files.
The collection is open to the public. Pour de plus amples renseignements visitez: http://library.queensu.ca/webmus/sc/menu.htm.
