|One of the earliest known signed photos of William Butler Yeats.|
A rare gelatin silver print bust portrait of Yeats as a young man, signed and inscribed by Yeats to U.S. politician and later U.S. secretary of state Bainbridge Colby: “To Mr. Bainbridge Colby with kind regards from WB Yeats March 1904.” Inscribed in ink on the flush board mount beneath the photograph.
The photograph is undated but likely predates the inscription by a few years: c.1900, when Yeats was in his mid-thirties. On the verso of the photograph mount is written in pencil: “Young Yeats photo by [????] not to be used without Mr. Yeats permission.” (We have not been able to determine the identity of the photographer.)
Gelatin silver print on original board mount. c.1900. Archivally framed with UV-protected museum glass. Photo including margin with inscription: 8.5x11in. Photo alone: 7x9in. Framed: 14.5x17.5in. Toning to mount, some abrasions to photo. An extremely rare early signed photo of Yeats.
