What Our Customers Say...

Description

Leather Binding, Limited Edition, Signed

George Augustus Moore (1852-1933) was an Irish novelist, short-story writer, poet, art critic, memoirist and dramatist. Moore came from a Roman Catholic landed family. He originally wanted to be a painter, and studied art in Paris during the 1870s. There, he befriended many of the leading French artists and writers of the day. As a naturalistic writer, he was amongst the first English-language authors to absorb the lessons of the French realists, and was particularly influenced by the works of Emile Zola. Aphrodite in Aulis is a lovingly crafted romance, with Classical overtones. Number 631 of 1825 limited edition copies, printed on handmade paper.
