Aubrey Beardsley by Stephen Calloway( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898) was the most notorious illustrator of his day. This book, published to commemorate the centenary of his tragically early death at the age of twenty-five, tells the story of his extraordinary life and brief, hectic career. Beardsley's distinctive body of work is considered alongside that of his contemporaries and friends, among them Oscar Wilde, James McNeill Whistler, Max Beerbohm, Edward Burne-Jones, and W.B. Yeats, and set against the vibrant and often racy artistic, literary, and social world of 1890s London. Beardsley's startling designs are reproduced here from original drawings and from rare early editions of the books and magazines he illustrated. Also included are examples of his innovative prints, posters, and bookbindings, along with a gallery of portraits and photographs of Wilde, Yeats, and other celebrated figures in Beardsley's circle. The authoritative text is the first to fully explore the precocious young artist's diverse influences, which range from ancient Greek vase paintings to erotic Japanese ukiyo-e prints and European Old Master paintings by Mantegna, Watteau, and Botticelli
The rape of the lock : an heroi-comical poem in five cantos by Alexander Pope( Book )

38 editions published between 1896 and 2017 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A hideous crime is committed at a fashionable London society gathering. The victim is the beautiful, innocent Belinda, her attacker is the dastardly Baron, and his weapon of choice is a pair of scissors ... Pope's mock-epic is the sharp and witty tale of the most famous bad hair day in the history of literature
Le Morte d'Arthur : King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table by Sir Thomas Malory( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Central figures in "The Matter of Britain," King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table still inspire many books and films today. Drawing on the legends of Camelot from French and English sources, Sir Thomas Malory compiled the drama of illicit love, the magic of sorcery, and the quest for the Holy Grail into a sordid and chivalrous tale that's been recounted for centuries. This beautiful leather-bound volume, with gilded edges and a ribbon bookmark so you never lose your place, will be a treasured edition of classic Arthurian folklore in any home library."--
Salome by Oscar Wilde( Book )

58 editions published between 1896 and 2021 in 5 languages and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Salome is Oscar Wilde's most experimental--and controversial--play. In its own time, the play, written in French, was described by a reviewer as "an arrangement in blood and ferocity, morbid, bizarre, repulsive." None, however, could deny the importance of Wilde's creation. Contemporary audiences and reviewers variously regarded Salome as the symbol of a thrilling modernity, a challenge to patriarchy, a confession of desire, a sign of moral decay, a new form of art, and a revolt against the restraints of Victorian society. Less well known than Wilde's beloved comedies, Salome is as enduringly modern and relevant. This edition uses the English translation done by Wilde's lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, and overseen and corrected by Wilde himself. Appendices detail the play's sources and provide extensive materials on its contemporary reception and dramatic productions. --Provided by publisher

Aubrey Beardsley : a biography by Matthew Sturgis( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this biography, Matthew Sturgis has uncovered a great amount of new material and used many previously untapped sources to produce the most compelling and definitive account of Beardsley's life to date." "Starting with Beardsley's shabby-genteel childhood in Brighton and London, Sturgis gives readers the full account of Beardsley's brief and brilliant life, from the artist's close relationship with his sister Mabel, his inspiring schooldays, his miserable year in a London insurance office, and his first discovery of Edward Burne-Jones, to his sudden rise to fame as co-editor of both The Yellow Book and The Savoy, his spectacular fall from grace in the wake of the Oscar Wilde scandal, and his anguished period of declining health. Willfully perverse, Beardsley achieved a fame that polarized late Victorian England while forging for himself a unique position among the Pre-Raphaelites, Impressionists, Symbolists, and literary Decadents that defined the fin de siecle temper. Yet, as Sturgis clearly demonstrates, perhaps Beardsley's greatest creation was himself. His deliberate manipulation of the press and public, his awareness of both art and market-place, made him one the of the first truly modern artists."--Jacket

Aubrey Beardsley : a slave to beauty by David Colvin( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colvin combines his particular interest in the history of clandestine publishing with his experience as an art historian to explore the work of the most notorious artist of the fin de siecle. Before he died at age 25, British illustrator and writer Beardsley created erotic drawings for Wilde's Salome, Pope's Rape of the Lock, The Lysistrata of Aristophanes, and Jonson's Valpone and to write his own highly erotic novel originally published as The Story of Venus and Tannhauser

Caxton's Malory by Thomas Malory( Book )

35 editions published between 1860 and 2017 in English and French and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Malory's majestic account of the Arthurian legends was one of England's first printed books, and has remained an inspiration for readers and writers down the centuries since it was first published by William Caxton in 1485. His eight tales share common characters and a common interest in the themes of love, chivalry and religion as they tell of the knights of the Round Table, their quests, their betrayals and, finally, the death of King Arthur and the disbandment of the Fellowship.This magnificent and evocative edition is based on the 1893 edition, decorated and illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley
Ermyntrude and Esmeralda by Lytton Strachey( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ermyntrude and Esmeralda was written as an exchange of correspondence between two teenage girls who have pledged themselves to find out all they can about sex, love, and making babies. Their reported discoveries include a passionate love affair between Esmeralda's younger brother and his male tutor ("Will they have babies? If not, why not?"); Ermyntrude's affair with a handsome footman on a staircase; the attempted seduction of Ermyntrude by her governess. By using nursery terms for private parts of the anatomy (bow-wows and pussy cats will never sound the same), Strachey makes all the more ludicrous society's standard reaction of horror to sex and deviation. Wit, irony, exaggeration, melodrama, these were Lytton Strachey's methods in this recently discovered and never before published novella
