Some Relevant Background Works

The majority of the works listed here are either referred to in A Vision or its preparation, or they refer to the Yeatses’ background in various esoteric traditions. Works in the Yeatses’ library are followed by the entry number in Wayne Chapman's The W. B. and George Yeats Library: A Short Title Catalog and then by Edward O’Shea’s older A Descriptive Catalog of W. B. Yeats’s Library in the form “(WBGYL ***; YL ***)”.   Those listed in the library catalogue from the 1920s are followed by “(1920s library)”, and refer to the list in O’Shea’s article in Yeats Annual 4 (1986), 279-290.  Some are modern editions of works, cited for availability, but a large number of the older works are now out of copyright and are available in scanned form: check the Internet Archive for any titles pre-1923 (the US cut-off date), a large number of them are there.
