THE WONDERFUL HISTORY OF VIRGILIUS THE SORCERER OF ROME. Englished for the First Time.
David Nutt in the Strand. 18993., London - First Edition. Small octavo, original light brown wrappers titled in black and red, sewn. 78 pp. Black & white frontispiece by Aubrey Beardsley, with tissue guard. Issued as Medieval Legends No. II. A fine copy in wrappers. Rare. Actually published January, 1894. Beardsley's frontispiece is said to have been placed only in a large paper edition limited to 100 copies. However, the publisher's advertisement (in THE BOOKMAN, December, 1893) speaks not of large and small paper issues, but of a single edition, "16mo., red and black wrapper. 1s." of which "500 copies will be issued with a frontispiece by Aubrey Beardsley, price 3s 6d." for which "Immediate applications should be made." The anonymous translation is by Mary Leighton. Lasner, A Selective Checklist of the Published Work of Aubrey Beardsley (1995), item 55. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
