From the blurb: " "Elkin Mathews is the most significant of that courageous little band of small publishers in Britain who around the turn of the century had a direct hand in the shaping of new literature. During his more than thirty years as a publisher, Mathews brought out books central to the Decadent and Symbolist movements of the 1890s; published the work of authors in the forefront of the Celtic movement; and issued numerous books by Ezra Pound expressive of ideas seminal to poetry in the teens. A list of some of his most influential titles reads like a roll call of works crucial to the rise of modern literature: Oscar Wilde's Salome, Arthur Symons' Silhouettes, W. B. Yeats's The Wind Among the Reeds, John Masefield's Ballads, Ezra Pound's Cathay and Lustra, William Carlos Williams' The Tempers, James Joyce's Chamber Music, and Richard Aldington's Images of Desire. He deserves special attention, too, for the tasteful design and format of his books, and for the intelligent use he made of such innovative designers and illustrators as Charles Ricketts, Selwyn Image, Aubrey Beardsley, Jack B. Yeats, and others. Elkin Mathews is not only a detailed account of Mathews' achievement as a publisher and the means by which he sought to attain his goals, but also a careful study of the role he played in the literary careers of his best-known and most significant authors, separate chapters being devoted to Yeats, Joyce, and Pound. The book includes as well a definitive listing of all of the publications that appeared under the Mathews imprint." Very Good. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-04170
