A complete run of the relaunched magazine The Butterfly, originally created by Walter Haddon in 1893; extremely uncommon in the original wrappers. The short run featured many notable contributors of the era, including Laurence Housman, Max Beerbohm, S.H. Sime, H.D. Lowry and Arthur Morrison. Of particular interest are the first appearance of H.G. Wells' short story 'A Vision of Judgement', published anonymously in No.7, and Baron Corvo's short story 'Stories Toto told me: About what is due to Repentance' (No.6).

12 issues (complete); large 8vo (234 x 155 mm); plates, illustrations and advertisements; publisher's pictorial wrappers, first part rather worn and dust-soiled with upper wrapper detached, another issue browned and worn at spine with upper cover detached, otherwise a very good set.
