Salome A Tragedy in One Act by Oscar Wilde / Aubrey Beardsley 1st 1906

£350.00Price

Usually listed as the first UK trade edition but essentially the second UK edition, preceded by a limited run of 500 printed in 1894 along with 100 large paper copies in the same year. This edition more widely published by John Lane, The Bodley Head in 1906. With the fantastic Aubrey Beardsley designed front board. This is a really lovely near fine copy with the spine in complete condition and only lightly toned. The front board also lightly toned to the edges. The pages are very clean with only the preliminary pages having a few foxing marks. Overall a near fine copy. 

 

A rare early edition of Oscar Wilde's Salome with the striking Aubrey Beardsley illustrated front board. A rare book in near fine condition.
