The Pierrot of the Minute.
- Londen, Leonard Smithers, 1897. Original gilt green cloth with designs by Beardsley on both sides. (2), 46 p. Ilustrated with a frontispice, two vignettes and an initial by Aubrey Beardsley. Printed in only 330 copies. With Gerrit Komrij’s tiny bookplate. A few minuscule stains, but the binding is fine and the gold is shimmering brightly.* 'One of the masterpieces of bookmaking in the Nineties' according to James G. Nelson in his Smithers book. An apogee in the work of these geniuses, both on the threshold of death (Beardsley 1872-1898, Dowson 1867-1900), forged to a perfect synthesis by publisher Leonard Smithers (1861-1907). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
