Dealer Notes
“It was at the suggestion of Edmund Gosse that Beardsley undertook to illustrate this poem. But he seldom illustrated anything literally: rather he made graphic comments on the text....which explains the use of the word 'embroidered' on the title page.” Beardsley Brian Reade

Beardsley, a true original, an influence on (or should we say copied by) so many.
Author Alexander Pope
