BEERBOHM, Max

BEERBOHM, Max The Works of Max Beerbohm

Heinemann, 1922.

Ten volumes. Limited edition, this being number 456 of 780 sets (30 of which were for presentation and not for sale) with volume one numbered and signed by Beerbohm. Original harlequin buckram cloth with paper labels on the spine. A bright set with some fading to the spines, particularly the purple volume (as usual), otherwise a near fine, crisp set.

Beerbohm came of age in the 1890s and was at the heart of its literary culture. His contribution to the first volume of The Yellow Books, an essay entitled 'A Defence Of Cosmetics' and written while he was still an undergraduate, earned him the title of decadent and gave the magazine a good deal of the notoriety on which its reputation rests.
