Between the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century, Lady Augusta Gregory welcomed numerous distinguished literary and artistic friends to her home in Coole Park. Many of these visitors were invited to carve their initials onto a wonderful 160-year-old copper beech tree in her walled garden, which became known as 'the Autograph Tree'. This book contains profiles of the signatories. The book is also a history of the Irish Literary Revival told through the biographical accounts of these people, as many of them played significant roles in this very important event.
