The Birthday of the Infanta, by Oscar Wilde, 1929. Features illustrations throughout by wunderkind artist Pamela Bianco, who was twenty-three years old at the time of publication.  In this short novel, Wilde tells the tale of the celebrations for the birthday of the Spanish infanta, which involve a dead embalmed queen, bad-spirited sentient flowers, philosophical lizards, and more.

 

🌼  Hardcover. 58 pgs, measures approx. 9.5" H x 6.25" W x 0.4" D. Good condition, with a fair dustjacket showing wear and chipping to edges and spine, some marks and soiling on pages. See images for reference, and feel free to email for more information. Just a note that the story involves a little person who entertains the court, and who is not spoken of with the kindness or understanding we would hope for today.
