About this Item

London: The Fanfrolico Press, 1929. Folio 59pp. Folio [39 cm] 3/4 blue calf over blue paper boards. Title and illustration gilt stamped on front board. Limited Edition, 469/500. Good+. Small stain to the bottom right hand corner of the cover, dot is about .5 inch radius, slight scratches to the leather binding. All edges rubbed in some cases rubbed through. Missing translator Jack Lindsay's signature. Some offsetting to front and back free endpaper due to glue ghosting through front and rear pastedowns. Else quite nice inside with 4 full plates and 13 illustrations in text. A fun and saucy translation of Aristophanes work with bright and lively illustrations by Norman Lindsay the translator's father. The Lindsay family was well know for their work in the arts both the visual and written works, especially in their home country of Australia. Norman's frank and sumptuous nudes were highly controversial. In 1940, Lindsay sent sixteen crates of paintings, drawings and etchings to the U.S. to protect them from the war. Unfortunately, they were discovered when the train they were on caught fire and were impounded and subsequently burned as pornography by American officials; older brother Lionel remembers Lindsay's reaction: "Don't worry, I'll do more." [Classics] [Erotica] [Press books] [Aristophanes]. Bookseller Inventory # AB042-CLAS
