W J Turner's satire on literary society in the original dustwrapper
First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 19.5 × 13.5cm. viii + 71pp
W J Turner's satire on the literary society of the 1920s. W J Turner was an Australian who arrived in England in 1907 where he met and befriended a number of literary intellectual figures, including Siegfried Sassoon, Virginia Woolf, Vita Sackville-West, and Lady Ottoline Morrell. In The Aesthetes he created a caricature of Ottoline Morrell under the name Virginia Caraway which she took great exception to and their friendship ceased.
The book is in good condition, secure binding but foxed throughout. The page edges are untrimmed and browned. The dustwrapper, a rare survival, has overall tanning and a few holes (one to the spine and one to the back) and has been backed in brown paper. It has been price-clipped but is now within a protective sleeve.
