This collection of books, letters, and other manuscripts was amassed by James A. Healy from his early days as a bibliophile
in the thirties until his death in 1975. Its greatest strengths are in the areas in which he had personal contacts: his friendship
with Oliver St. John Gogarty; his extended correspondence with Elizabeth C. Yeats and George Yeats, from whom he obtained
all the Dun Emer and Cuala Press books (a great number of which were inscribed by their authors or by W. B. Yeats); a very
fine selection of Cuala Press greeting cards and prints; and his contacts with Ernest Boyd, Richard Campbell, and Irene Haugh,
which brought him AE's letters to those recipients and some of his unpublished lectures.
