How it works


2pp. 40 line autograph poem with corrections and signed by Tynan, entitled "The Knight Turned Gardener". Page size 18x13cms. At the top fore corner of the first leaf is a name and address "Miss Hinkson - Co Dublin" - this might refer to herself (her married name was Hinkson) or a relative. It would also date this manuscript to post 1898, the date of her marriage. I have been unable to trace this poem and it may possibly be unpublished. Tynan was an important Irish poet and author who had a close friendship with W.B.Yeats. Her autograph material would appear to be scarce, and I cannot trace another autograph manuscript on the market.
