Descripción Edinburgh: Tragara Press, 1979. Soft cover. Estado de conservación: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Dark green wrappers, printed paper label. Edition limited to 100 numbered copies. Vincent O'Sullivan (1868-1940) was unusual among the figures of the English Eighteen Nineties in being American. Born in Dublin, brought up in New York, he was sent to school in England, at St Mary's, Oscott, where he was taught by Frederick Rolfe. He dropped out of Oxford to join the Yellow Book set and was a good friend to Oscar Wilde, of whom he leaves a revealing portrait in Aspects of Wilde (1938). These letters are written in 1928-39, during the author's depressed last years, to Seumas O'Sullivan (James Sullivan Starkey, 1870-1958), Editor of The Dublin Review. "At present," he writes in 1938, "I have no money - not even to get my clothes repaired." Halliwell A63: "Unusually the printed paper label on the upper wrapper is printed in two colours".
