    "W. B. Yeats is Ireland's greatest poet, and he has for many years past been assured of an immortality of fame. He has had the distinction of being awarded (in 1923) the Nobel Prize for Literature. Nothing that he has done has been accomplished by chance, but by inspired imagining and the most exquisite handicraft." (Drinkwater: The Outline of Literature, pp. 1,079-1,080)

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
