Les Frequentations de Maurice

Paris: Dorbon [1911].

Item #6327

A brilliantly chatty gay novel whose central character is an androgynous dandy and man about town. The author's only novel, it was later excerpted in Adelsward-Fersen's short lived magazine Akademos. Boulestin, a onetime secretary to Willy (Henry Gauthier-Villars) was friends with Reggie Turner, Robert Ross, among others, and went on to become one of England's most famous chefs. Very good in very good illustrated wrappers, covers a bit spotted. Uncommon.

Price: $325.00
