|Constance Wilde's grave in Genoa|
|Charles Ricketts's Mysterious Mother (2016)|
Ricketts's mother was not French as was previously thought, nor was she a child from the Soucy family, although at a certain point she used that name. It turns out that she was not called Hélène, but Cornelia, and in full: Cornelia Pia Adeodata Marsuzi de Aguirre. Born in Rome in 1844, she had an adventurous life, which has been described in the new book.
The book also contains some illustrations, including a photo of Charles Ricketts as a child (about six years old) that has never been published before.
The price of the book is €30 (€40 including postage), and copies can be ordered via paulton[at]xs4all.nl. [Replace [at] with the @ sign].
Payment can be made through Paypal.
