The London Aphrodite {Numbers 1 - 6}

London: Fanfrolico Press, 1928-1929.

Offering a varied and at times controversial collection of Australian and European literary talent, "The London Aphrodite" is a testament to the energy and talent of the Lindsay family as artists, writers and publishers. The journal was banned in the United States for alleged obscenity.

From the editiorial manifesto: 'We affirm Life, and for definition quote Nietzsche: Spirit is that life which itself cuts into life. We affirm Beauty, and by that term understand a sensual harmony, a homogenous ecstasy, which, constructing intellectually, yet hates nothing so much as the dry cogs of the objectified and objectifying intellect.'.

Item #1098

Octavo, complete set of six volumes in original illustrated wrappers, occasional black & white plates and scattered vignettes by Norman Lindsay; a little browning of the covers, a near-fine set.
