A request


Does any reader have a scan of this picture of William Butler Yeats? I’ve seen it on some versions of the complete works of Yeats, but the only version I can find online via GIS is 404ing and is small (~300×300). Also, does anyone know the providence of the photo? Email me at john dot lynch at gmail dot com if you have any leads. Thanks.

    Hi John,

    The word you’re looking for is “provenance”, not “providence”.
