The Pierrot of the Minute - A Dramatic Phantasy in One Act.
Leonard Smithers, London., 1897. First edition. Small quarto. 43 pages. Frontispiece, initial letter, vignette and cul-de-lampe by Aubrey Beardsley. One of 300 small paper copies - there were a further 25 large paper copies. Original green cloth lettered in gilt and with a gilt design by Beardsley on the upper cover. Laid in is the original, very rare, 4-page prospectus for the book, the upper panel of which reproduces the vignette. Art nouveau bookplate on front pastedown, dated (by hand) "1899" and with the intriguing initials "AB" (if only!). On the front free endpaper is the bookplate of the author and literary agent Giles Gordon who was a noted collector of Oscar Wilde. Corners and head and tail of spine a little bruised. Front inner hinge a little cracked. Very good.
      [Bookseller: Peter Ellis bookseller]
