THE LIMITED 1/100 ISSUE OF THE ENGLISH EDITION OF SALOMÉ WITH THE ORIGINAL SUPPRESSED "ENTER HERODIAS" PLATE (showing male genitalia). Before publication of this, the first illustrated edition of Salomé, two plates were completely suppressed: "John and Salomé"  (replaced by "The Black Cape") and the first rendering of "The Toilette of Salomé". Furthermore two plates were 'bowdlerised' at the publisher's request: the pictorial title-page and "Enter Herodias". This copy contains the original version of the latter, and also contains what appears to be Leonard Smithers' copy of the original version of "The Toilette of Salomé" plate (now on slightly thinner paper), numbered and initialled by him ("no.40 L.S"). This is probably from the limited edition of 75 copies of this plate Smithers is known to have produced after 1904.

"I suppose you've heard all about the Salomé Row. I can tell you I had a warm time of it between Lane and Oscar and Co. For one week the number of telegraph and messenger boys who came to the door was simply scandalous. I really don't quite know how the matter really stands now... I have withdrawn three of the illustrations and supplied their places with three new ones (simply beautiful and quite irrelevant)." [letter by Beardsley to Robert Ross, Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde, p.574)]

Wilde loved Beardsley's illustrations but disliked the binding, preserved in the present copy beneath a later matching vellum binding by Riviere and son.
