The prospectus for the Fanfrolico Press edition of 'Satyrs and Sunlight'
[London, Fanfrolico Press, 1909].
Quarto (285 x 220 mm), a leaflet (with two deckle edges), printed recto only, with head- and tail-piece line illustrations by Norman Lindsay.
One crease across the centre; half of the blank verso tanned (the sheet was folded with the printed surface innermost, then stored inside a book next to its acidic cover); thin strip of discolouration along the top edge; in excellent condition.
This first edition was illustrated by Norman Lindsay ('There are twenty-nine full-page collotype plates of drawings by NORMAN LINDSAY and six hand-gravure plates of etchings by this masterly draughtsman'). The first Australian edition, published in 1911 by Lothian, was not illustrated; presumably this was to keep faith with purchasers of the original edition: 'It is a book which the wise collector will be sure to inspect, for if ever there was outstanding book-value it is 'Satyrs and Sunlight' at the subscription price of four guineas'.
