Description Despite his immense cultural significance for American art collecting, Edward Perry Warren (1860-1928) is little known as an author. He is remembered as the leading connoisseur and collector of Graeco-Roman antiquities of his period, as well as a wealthy patron who, along with his lover John Marshall, formed and maintained the homoerotic "Lewes House Brotherhood." However, under his pseudonym Arthur Lyon Raile he also became the chief paederastic apologist in the language. This two-volume "Collected Works" provides scholarly editions of E. P. Warren's works (all, save one, never before re-issued), augmented by a biographical introduction, extensive notes, translations, illustrations, and appendices. For the first time, Warren's voice is heard in full--through his correspondence and other residues that constitute his commissioned "Edward Perry Warren: The Biography of a Connoisseur," through his conversation, captured in Osbert Burdett's "An Imaginary Conversation," through his novel "A Tale of Pausanian Love" (published here for the first time) and his collection "The Wild Rose: A Volume of Poems," through his fairy-tale "The Prince Who Did Not Exist" and his scholarly article "The Scandal of the Museo di Villa Giulia," through his pamphlet "Classical & American Education" and his retelling of three Greek legends in "Alcmaeon, Hypermestra, Caeneus," and through his magnum opus, the apologia "A Defence of Uranian Love."
