Londres: Siegle, Hill & Co. (1909). 34pp.

Item #3328

A quite uncommon collection of homoerotic poetry printed in England, but distributed by Messein in France. The collection includes a number of erotic poems, including 'Adolescents", "Corydon", "l'Éphèbe" and "Sonnet pour un Androgyne". An attractive publication with a Beardsley-esque frontispiece of a faun's head and decorative covers. The author died quite young in a bus accident, but produced several similar collections and contributed to Pan: Revue Libre and Mercure de France.
Very good in wrappers, decorative frontispiece, bound in lightly worn green boards.

Price: $400.00
