About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Fifty Drawings By Aubrey Beardsley, Selected from the Collection Owned by Mr. H. S. Nichols.

Description:

This is copy no. 221 of the first American edition, privately published in an edition of 500 copies printed for sale in the United States, and signed in black ink on the limitation page by the publisher, H. S. Nichols. Printed and presumed bound in the USA. Black buckram binding with crisp gilt-stamped lettering and art nouveau style design to the front board and slightly faded lettering to the spine. Exceptionally clean binding as to the front board and spine; rear board with very light soiling. 12 x 9.25 inches. Moderate bumping and abrading to the spine head and tail, and to the corners. Rear hinge giving slightly but text block remains firmly bound in. Unnumbered pages, including title page, table of contents, and 50 full-page B&W plates of drawings alleged to be by Aubrey Beardsley. In fact all 50 are forgeries. 47 reprinted (as spurious works) in The Collected Drawings of Aubrey Beardsley. See checklist no. 197. Each plate page preceded by a sheet stating the title and size of each drawing. As to every page, light to moderate age-toning along the edges, not into the plates themselves. Front pastedown with the handsome B&W ex libris plate of Merrill Rosenthal and depicting Eve in the Garden of Knowledge, with serpent and book. Rear FEP with a clean, 1 inch diagonal dog-ear at the bottom corner. No remainder marks. Else a very clean copy, and rather tight. Respectfully read. A Very Good copy. All in all an attractive copy of a somewhat scarce work featuring what are falsely claimed to be previously unpublished Beardsley drawings, a number of which convey a rather sinister eroticism consistent with the style of Beardsley. According to Mark Samuels Lasner, A Selective Checklist of the Published Work of Aubrey Beardsley, "The drawings, exhibited, with 20 others, at Nichols' bookshop, 17 East 33rd Street, New York, 14 - 19 April 1919, were at once denounced by A. E. Gallatin and Joseph Pennell. According to Gallatin, Haldane Macfall believed them to be the work of 'at least two forgers,' probably Nichols and one of his associates." Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
