Oscar Wilde and the Aesthetic Interior First edition, 2000. Hardback. 144pp. Black cloth boards with gilt to spine. Dust jacket. Published in the centenary of Oscar Wilde's death, "The House Beautiful" celebrates Wilde's association with the Aesthetic Movement. Charlotte Gere examines the origins of the Aesthetic Movement and its influence on the decorative arts and traces the people Wilde associated with - the artists, architects and designers he admired, and the houses and interiors he was influenced by. This is a comprehensive account of the aesthetic interior across a wide spectrum of late neineteenth-century society, illustrated with a selection of the most evocative images. Book in very good condition. Tiny mark to top of upper board and a little rubbing to bottom corners, lower edges and extremities of spine. Very minor bumping to corners and a couple of pressure marks to leading edges. Internally very clean and bright. Dust jacket very good and unclipped. Minor edge wear and very light soiling.
