ABSINTHE HISTORY IN A BOTTLE

£45.00

Barnaby Conrad III, San Francisco, California, U.S.A.: Chronicle Books Llc, 1988. First Edition; First Printing

 

Made popular by Oscar Wilde, Baudelaire, van Gogh, Manet, Toulouse-Lautree, Picasso and many other prominent artists and writers, absinthe was first used in ancient Greece for its healing powers. In nineteenth century France, it became a symbol of decadence and soon a scapegoat for the social and political ills of the period, leading to its ultimate prohibition. From wild stories about its celebrated users to compelling insights into its influence on art, this lavishly illustrated book features over 60 colour and 100 black-and-white reproductions of paintings and other absinthe-related art, including posters for and against the controversial spirit.

For all those interested in art, literature, liquor or decadence, Absinthe is history in a bottle.



Condition; Good, Back cover has a corner crease.
