London / Boston: Elkins Mathews & John Lane / Copeland & Day, 1894. Beardsley, Aubrey. Small quarto. (x), 66, (2)pp., + 13ff. plates. First English and first illustrated edition. One of 125 copies on Japan vellum. In addition to the ten black & white plates after drawings by Aubrey Beardsley listed at the front of the book, this copy contains all three of the suppressed plates. The first, "John and Salome," was replaced in the final book with "The Black Cape." The other two plates are earlier versions of "Enter Herodias" and "Toilette of Salome," which were deemed too risqué for publication and were altered. Although Wilde commissioned Beardsley to illustrate his translation of Salome, he was shocked by the end result and felt that the images overpowered his text. Beardsley mocked Wilde in several of the illustrations, depicting him as the "Woman in the Moon" and as a jester in "Enter Herodias." This copy was specially bound for D ... Read more

Paris, 1922. Alastair (Hans Henning Voight). Original illustration in red and black ink and pencil on paper. 11 7/8 by 9 1/2 in. This drawing first appeared in Fifty Drawings by Alastair, published by Knopf in 1925, and a similar version was used in the Paris edition of Wilde's text published the same year. Beardsley's popularity and sudden death created opportunities for other artists of the Decadent movement, such as Alastair and Erté. This drawing exhibits the understated menace of Beardsley, but with an eye toward texture. The detail in Herod's elaborate robe, and the plant and vase to his left exhibit a distinctly Asian aesthetic. Some glue residue on verso, else a very fine drawing by one of the most popular book illustrators of the first half of the twentieth century. (Arwas: 26. Published in Fifty Drawings by Alastair).

London: Limited Editions Club [printed by The Fanfare Press], 1938. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Beardsley, Aubrey; Derain, André. No. 1101 of 1500, quarto size, pp., signed by Andre Derain. "Salomé" is one of the rare Symbolist dramas in British theatrical history and was widely called "decadent" upon its publication, an appellation Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) may have welcomed because of his view of decadence not only as a pleasurable way of life, but as a necessary precondition for a cultural renaissance. Originally published in French in 1891, and later in English in 1894, the play was banned in London by the Lord Chamberlain's licensor of plays, on the basis that it was illegal to depict Biblical characters on the stage; the ban was not lifted until 1931 (n. b. from Wikipedia and John Stokes for The British Library). In addition to its controversy, "Salomé" is striking in its use of language, as Wilde mimics the cadence of Biblical text ... Read more

Wilde, Oscar

  • Book condition: Fair
  • Quantity available: 1
San Francisco: J. A. Ephraim, 1896. Book. Fair. Hardcover. Possibly the rarest of the Salome variants, 12mo, leather covers by Charles Scribners, front cover detached, original ten Aubrey Beardsley plates + another providing the list. Ephraim was a bookseller and publisher although data on him is impossible to find. There appears to be no title page and whether this was lost or simply never created cannot be deduced. F/o was Henry W. Poor (with his emblem seal on one page), renowned banker-bibliophile with very expensive tastes, creator of Standard and Poor's manual for evaluating stocks. Went broke on investments in 1908 and much of his library was sold to pay creditors. A few edges are a bit rough, needs rebinding but this is a precious add-on for any Wilde collector. Not found in the usual Wilde bibliographies at the NYPL..

Very Good/The last of the John Lane "Bodley Head" editions of the classic collaboration between Aubrey Beardsley and Oscar Wilde.
