Paris: La Revue Blanche (15 mars 1896). Gauthier-Villars was a French fin-de-siecle writer and music critic who is today mostly known as the mentor and first husband of Colette. This short essay was written several years after his marriage to Colette and is a response to an article written by Oscar Panizza about the appeal of Wagner's Parsifal to homosexuals. The essay references Ulrichs and Oscar Wilde and is one of several essays on related subjects that appeared in the same year in La Revue Blanche (by Lord Alfred Douglas, Charles Kains Jackson and others). Very good in original wrappers, front cover lightly worn.
