Published in November of 1934 in 3000 copies.
Yeats had crossed paths with Dulac several years before Dulac designed the famous masks for At the Hawk's Well in 1916. By that time Dulac was one of the most eminent illustrative artists of the day, and he became friends with Yeats, accompanying him to séances and other spiritualist events. Dulac illustrated several of Yeats' books (including Four Plays for Dancers, At the Hawk's Well, A Vision and others). Yeats also dedicated The Winding Stair to Dulac, and remained great friends with him despite several artistic spats. Dulac introduced Yeats to Edith Shackleton Heald in April of 1937 (who became the successor to Ruddock and Ethel Mannin in Yeats' affections), and was much involved in the machinations related to returning the poet's body from France in 1947 and 1948.
