Photo 31 Aug 9 notes Salomé. Oscar Wilde. John W. Luce & Company, Boston (1906). First American edition. Illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley.
Biblical stories were not allowed to be depicted on the London Stage in the 19th century so Oscar Wilde wrote Salome in French. It wasn’t performed however until 1896, by which time Oscar was in prison.
