Signed by the author on the title page. Exceptionally cool. Limited to 250 numbered copies. Beautiful French-wraps. “. . . in the same decade that witnessed the celebrations of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee a diverse group of writers, artist and poets sought to subvert the oppressive cultural and moral atmosphere of the period. This was the city explored by Oscar Wilde, Arthur Symons, Aubrey Beardsley, Frank Harris and Ernest Dowson, together with their less well-known compatriots Lionel Johnson, John Gray, John Davidson and the mysterious Count Stenbock. Using a thematic approach, Decadent London recreates the artistic milieu of this turbulent time, describes the most popular decadent destinations and provides concise biographical material on the central characters, many of whom became victims of their excessively louche lifestyles.” #65786
