Press mark to the Cuala Press
Collection: Special Collections, UCC Library, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland.
The Cuala Press (1908-late 1940s) was an Irish private press set up by Elizabeth Yeats and was originally known as Dun Emer Press (1902-1908). One of the images most associated with the Cuala Press is the Dun Emer pressmark of ‘Lady Emer and tree’. The pressmark was designed by Elinor Monsell and was first used in Katharine Tynan’s Twenty One Poems (1907). The image used here is from Lyrics and satires from Tom Moore selected by Sean O’Faolain. Dublin: Cuala Press, 1929. For more information see: Life on Land: Birds & Trees from the 17th-21st Centuries https://libguides.ucc.ie/lifeonland
