WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS
Nobel Prize-winning Irish poet and playwright addresses an envelope to a famed portrait photographer for whom he posed.
Autograph Envelope, unsigned, 4½x3¾. Postmarked on verso New York, N.Y., June 30, 1904, but bearing a British stamp with an illegible postmark. Yeats has hand addressed an envelope to "Miss Boughton/312 Madison Avenue,/New York/USA." WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS (1865-1939), an Irish poet, was one of the greatest poets of the English language. He co-founded the Irish Literary Theatre in 1899 in Dublin; it became the Abbey Theatre in 1904. Renowned for both his plays and his poetry, Yeats won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923. His works drew on Irish legends and folklore and had a strong mystical bent. Although an Irish patriot, Yeats condemned what he considered excesses of the Nationalist movement. He served two terms in the Senate of the Irish Free State (1922-1928). ALICE BOUGHTON (1866-1943) was a prominent New York portrait photographer. Yeats sat for Boughton's camera. His portrait appears in her collection Photographing the Famous (1928). Lightly creased and soiled. Slightly frayed at upper edge where envelope was opened. Otherwise, fine condition.
