Catalogue Note

W. B. Yeats visited southern Spain in November 1928 when suffering from serious ill-health, which he feared would prove terminal:

"...Greater glory in the sun,
An evening chill upon the air,
Bid imagination run
Much on the Great Questioner.." (W.B. Yeats, 'At Algeciras - A Meditation upon Death')
