Item Detail

Name: #877 of 1500 "SALOME" Oscar Wilde w/ Beardsley illustrations
Category: Books, Paper & Magazines
Description: "This edition privately printed at the press of J.J. Little and Ives Company for the Three Sirens Press, is limited to 1500 copies of which this is copy No 877"

This is a beautiful book! Wilde and Beardsley were two of the most interesting icons of the Aesthete / Decadent period and this volume is as notable for Beardsley's contribution as to Wilde's.

Some minor wear on the edges and bottom corners are bumped. The gilt on the spine is mostly faded but on the covers is bright. I assume it was on the shelf in a personal library where it got sun on the spine. All pages intact and binding solid. No marks or tears on any of the pages. The cover material and overall construction of this noble volume, excellently represents the turn of the century aesthete/decadent. Photos forthcoming.
