Lysistrata Prints (and one other).
Folio. [Germany]: Privatdruck, 1905. Folio, 8 plates from Lysistrata printed on Japan vellum in b/w enclosed in a yellow paper printed folder. Very fine as issued. "Dieses Werk wurde in einer einmaligen Auflage von 100 numierten Exemplaren hergestellt. Ein Nachdruck findet night statt, die Platten sind vernichtet." Rare large paper printing of all the plates from Beardsley's fin-de-si├Ęcle erotic masterpiece. The first edition of Lysistrata was published in 1896 in an edition of only 100 copies, with several subsequent pirated editions, and a collotype reissue of the plates in 1929. This rare early edition of the plates replicates the published edition in that the illustrations are printed on Japan vellum, however the plates are here printed on large paper. Also loosely inserted is a slightly smaller plate titled "The Pierrot of the Minute" with the note "Beardsley" in pencil.
