= "Charles Ricketts wrote and in 1929 privately issued "Beyond the Threshold", which he pretended was but his translation from the original French of Jean Paul Raymond. He again introduces this imaginary author into his own recollections of Oscar Wilde. Although the setting is invented the episodes and conversations were conscientiously taken from the diaries and letters that he had kept. By this artifice Ricketts created a sympathetic audience for his words of passionate indignation at the fate of his friend." (note by Thomas Lowinsky on p.7). On the binding, Taylor p.92: "... the best of his [Ricketts's] work in this medium marks one of the high points, possibly the high point, of British book-design"; Dreyfus 81.
