      This book published by Dover Art Library is a real treat. These are "selected illustrations" since Beardsley did over 800 of them for "Le Morte Darthur." One could read this 44-page text in one sitting or two; however, one also could spend hours examining each of Beardsley's drawings. It's sad to think Beardsley only lived till twenty two years old. What might he have produced if he had lived a few more decades?
