Most widely held works by Aubrey Beardsley
Salome : a tragedy in one act by Oscar Wilde( Book )

109 editions published between 1894 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 1,680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce drame en un acte et en prose a été écrit directement en français en 1891, publié en 1893, puis traduit en anglais par O. Wilde. Le choix du français est lié à la fois à l'importance du mythe de Salomé dans la littérature française, au désir de Wilde de voir Sarah Bernhardt interpréter le rôle-titre, et à son amour pour cette langue
Le morte d'Arthur by Thomas Malory( )

38 editions published between 1893 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although many versions of the Arthurian legends exist, Malory's remains the classic telling. The tales, steeped in the magic of Merlin, and the powerful cords of the chivalric code
Aubrey Beardsley by Stephen Calloway( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 920 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

Aubrey Beardsley : a biography by Matthew Sturgis( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 661 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

Aesthetes and decadents of the 1890's; an anthology of British poetry and prose by Karl E Beckson( )

10 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Aesthetic and Decadent Movement of the late 19th century spawned the idea of Art for Art's Sake, challenged aesthetic standards and shocked the bourgeosie. From Walter Pater's study, The Renaissance to Salome, the truly decadent collaboration between Oscar Wilde and Aubrey Beardsley, Karl Beckson has chosen a full spectrum of works that chronicle the British artistic achievement of the 1890s. In this revised edition of a classic anthology, The Ballad of Reading Gaol has been included in its entirety; the bibliography has been completely updated; Professor Beckson's notes and commentary have been expanded from the first edition published in 1966. The so-called Decadent or Aesthetic period remains one of the most interesting in the history of the arts. The poetry and prose of such writers as Yeats, Wilde, Symons, Johnson, Dowson, Barlas, Pater and others are included in this collection, along with sixteen of Aubrey Beardsley's drawings
Lysistrata by Aristophanes( Book )

46 editions published between 1896 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Aristophanes' most popular play, sex is a powerful agent of reconciliation. As war ravages ancient Greece, a band of women, led by Lysistrata, promise to deny their husbands all sex until they stop fighting. This volume of Lysistrata brings the play up to date with modern scholarship, providing an account of its history and containing new information about the comic theater and its social and political context. Lysistrata not only brims with topical references to social life, religion, and politics in classical Athens; it is also one of the best sources for information on the life of women in antiquity, offering a unique glimpse of their everyday life
