IT was once in the summertime of 1895 that I first met Aubrey Beardsley. A writer had requested me to shape and edit a brand new type of journal, which used to be to entice the general public both in its letterpress and its illustrations : want I say that i'm defining the Savoy? It was once, I admit, to were whatever of a rival to the Yellow e-book, which had by means of that point ceased to mark a circulation, and had end up little greater than a publisher's journal.
