Author: (WILDE, Oscar). STUART-YOUNG, J.M. Title: Osrac, the Self-Sufficient and Other Poems. With a Memoir of the Late Oscar Wilde (Portraits and fac-simile letters).
Description: London, The Hermes Press, 1905. 26 x 19 cm. Gilt blue and green cloth with art . 120 p. Illustrated. First edition. Backstrip worn at the edges, cover rubbed. Bizarre book containing epigonistic poetry, several portraits of the youthful author Johnny Moray Stuart-Young (1881-1939), forged letters of Oscar Wilde and a nicely made-up Memoir. Interesting art-nouveau binding. Stuart-Young was raised in a slum, but dreamed of a writing career. He emigrated to the colonies of Western Africa, where he established a business and made money, but he kept publishing novels and poetry; some 22 volumes in all. A remarkable title echoing Max Stirner's 'Der Einzige und sein Eigenthum'.
