About this Item

First edition thus and first of Aldington's translation. Illustrated by Norman Tealby with 12 plates and a plethora of cartouches and other decorations throughout. Tall 8vo, publisher's original navy blue cloth gilt lettered and with a Tealby designed gilt cartouches on the upper cover and spine. xxxiii, 220 pp. A very fine copy, especially bright, clean and well preserved. A BRILLIANTLY ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF VOLTAIRE'S FAMOUS SATIRE OF A YOUNG OPTIMISTS SLOW, PAINFUL DISILLUSIONMENT. This is the first edition of Aldington's translation and also the first with Tealby's illustrations. Tealby's style has been compared to those of both Aubrey Beardsley and Harry Clarke for his use of light and black and emphasis on the grotesque and decadent. Aldington's translation is considered quite excellent and was done during the poet/writer's self-imposed 'exile' to Paris. The translation has since been reprinted many times, but this is its only pairing with Tealby's art. Bookseller Inventory # 26585
