The Yellow Book. An Illustrated Quarterly

[YELLOW BOOK] BEARDSLEY, Aubrey, and others

  • Edition: First Edition
  • Quantity available: 1
London and New York, 1897. First Edition. First edition: an attractive set of the complete run of the most important and notorious British "magazine" of the 1890s. A journal of art and literature designed to sell high culture, it became a magnet for avant-garde writers and illustrators. Today it is considered a "herald of modernity". Certainly its most famous contributor, whose name is always linked with the Yellow Book, was Aubrey Beardsley, however other design contributors included Patten Wilson, D. Y. Cameron, Mabel Dearmer, J. Illingworth Kay, Nellie Syrett, Ethel Reed and Mabel Syrett. The publication was innovative in style, format, and content, especially in its separation of art and literature, exclusion of advertising (except for the publisher's catalogue), and support of new artists and writers, especially women. Henry Harland was literary editor for the entire run. Beardsley was art editor until just before the publication of Volume V, when he was fired by Lane under sev ... Read more

  • Quantity available: 1
Elkin Mathews & John Lane The Bodley Head, London., 1894-1897. A complete set. Aubrey Beardsley's position as art editor ended between the fourth and fifth volumes, following the arrest of Oscar Wilde and because of Beardsley's perceived connection with him, but his drawings are what distinguish this quarterly and account for its aura of eighteen-nineties decadence.

Nesbit, Dollie Radford, Baron Corvo, George Gissing, John Buchan, Vernon Lee, Richard Garnett, W.B.

  • Quantity available: 1
London: Elkin Mathews & John Lane, 1894-1897 Complete set of the short-lived but famous Yellow Book. HB. Thirteen volumes, quarto, each bound in the yellow pictorial cloth, reflecting the style of the art editor during the first year, Aubrey Beardsley. Yellow was chosen to echo French risque novels of the time that had yellow covers. Although it was associated with the decadence and art for art's sake of the 1890s, the literary contents were often more conventional. Beardsley's design features on the covers of Volumes I-4, and these volumes include drawings by him (eg Vols II and III have ten such drawings by Beardsley). Vol.5 includes a pencil note about the change to the contents caused by the trial of Oscar Wilde. No further artwork by Beardsley is included. High quality reproductions of artworks are a feature of the volumes, usually tissue-guarded plates . A mixture of art and literature, with publishers' lists being the only advertisements. Volume I, April 1894, to Volume XIII, April 189 ... Read more
