One and one-half octavo pages on a small quarto sheet. Addressed: "Dear M. Yours [?]".

In the publisher's second-state binding (blind central device on rear board and publisher's name on spine in upper- and lower-cases). Spine sunned and rubbed, gilt title on spine is difficult to read, some rubbing, mild soiling to binding. Letter has several horizontal creases, and there is smudging throughout (including on Yeats' signature on the verso). Still, very good. Chemised in slipcase.
