About This Item

London: J. M. Dent & Sons Limited, 1927. Limited edition. Hardcover. Fine. Thin 4to. One of 300 copies on handmade paper, this is copy No, 76. Leather spine, gilt; vellum boards,the upper board tooled in gilt with Beardsley's iconic water lily design.


A publisher's note is followed by a note on the designs by R. A. Walker, and note on Aubrey Beardsley by Aymer Vallance. The eleven omitted designs are followed by a reproduction of the Merlin illustration as well as a sketch for an unused cover design and the cover design used for the issued parts. Thus there are 14 designs in all.


This is a near fine copy with only a trace of soil, a few tiny pinholes in the hinges, and some yawning of the boards. and free of the foxing that dogs this title. Scarce thus. The illustrations have offset to the facing pages as usual.


Gaines, A14 c.1.b.
