Notes

First and limited edition, number 474 of 800 copies only, a superb copy in the jacket. A printed note informs the reader that "Charles Ricketts wrote and in 1929 privately issued 'Beyond the Threshold', which he pretended was but his translation from the original French of Jean Paul Raymond. He again introduces this imaginary author into his own recollections of Oscar Wilde. Although the setting is invented the episodes and conversations were conscientiously taken from diaries and letters that he had kept. By this artifice Ricketts created a sympathetic audience for his words of passionate indignation at the fate of his friend." With typography by Francis Meynell.
