Item Description: London: Ward, Lock, 1891, 1891. First English Edition; trade issue. Publisher's vellum-backed boards; an exceptional copy; fine in the rare dust jacket.

We have previously either had two copies in dust jacket, or a single example twice. Whichever is the case, it certainly is a rarity in dust jacket. In a custom quarter-morocco slipcase.

Item Description: London, [1898], 1898. First edition of Wilde's legendary poem, written while he was in jail, in its rarest state - being one of only 30 copies printed on Japanese vellum. This copy comes from the distinguished library of the actress LENA ASHWELL (1872-1957), who as a young actress toured in Wilde's LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN in 1891, later becoming actor-manager of the Savoy Theatre. According to her biographer, Margaret Leask (LENA ASHWELL: ACTRESS, PATRIOT, PIONEER, Univ. of Hertfordshire Press, 2012), Ashwell was particularly troubled by the news of Wilde's arrest, and wrote later: "- the atmosphere of London was horrible and cruel. His plays were so very brilliant, and I had seen this when I was in LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN, so I felt that he was a friend and in desperate trouble." Later, during WWI, she is known to have pioneered the organization of entertainments on a large scale for the British troops in France. An excellent association copy of an essential Wilde rarity First edition, ONE OF 30 COPIES on Japanese vellum. 8vo. . Cinnamon- colored cloth, vellum spine. Covers show slight insect damage and minor soiling, spine a bit soiled, otherwise a very good copy in a quarter blue morocco slipcase with chemise and with the bookplate and signature of actress LENA ASHWELL on the front pastedown.

Item Description: London: Ward, Lock & Company, 1891. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing with "nd" to page 208, regular issue. Publisher's rough grey beveled boards with white parchment spine, gilt lettering to the front board and spine, Charles Ricketts' butterfly illustrations in gilt to the front board and spine. Very good, with minor toning to the spine and board edges, light crack to the bottom thirds of the otherwise secure hinges, light crack between pages 192 and 193, otherwise intact and study binding, former owner's 1891 inscription to the front free endpaper, hint of minor toning to the page edges, otherwise bright and fresh pages, loss to bottom of page 3. Overall, a remarkably clean and tight copy of an extremely fragile book without any of the usual repairs or restoration. A completely unsophisticated copy of the author's first and only novel. Mason 328. Housed in a custom cloth box with vellum spine. Originally published serially in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in July 1890, is a Gothic novel about the handsome Dorian Gray, who, like Faust, trades his soul for sensual pleasures. Specifically, Gray, who knows his physical beauty will fade over time, wills that his beauty never fade so that he may continue to indulge in worldly beauty indefinitely; instead of bearing the responsibility of his sins, Dorian Gray remains youthful and unblemished while his full-length portrait ages and grows increasingly ugly. Ultimately, Gray realizes that the only way to right his wrongs is to atone for his sins by destroying his own portrait, and, effectively, himself. The Picture of Dorian Gray, considered scandalous in Victorian England, was partially censored by Lippincott's Monthly Magazine and received much criticism from contemporary reviewers. Wilde defended his novel, and even expanded the book form, which, according to Mason, contained "six new chapters, many alterations, and much additional matter." Indeed, Wilde continued to defend himself in this first edition's preface, where he argued that "there is no such thing as an immoral or moral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.". Bookseller Inventory # OW025

Item Description: London: Methuen, (1905), 1905. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Preface by Robert Ross. Arguably, this item is the single most important copy of the First Edition of Wilde's painful accounting of the effect of social débâcle and imprisonment: the famed Robert Ross copy. The only work Wilde wrote in prison and the last work in prose he ever wrote, the manuscript of which Wilde entrusted to his dear friend, Robert [Robbie] Ross, his sometime lover, most stalwart supporter, and writer of this book's Preface. To add even more significance to the item, this copy is inscribed by Ross himself (and dated Feb. 26th 1906) to their mutual friend Ponsonby [Augustus Moore Sullivan], rumored sometime lover to Wilde and brother-in-law to Wilde's close friend More Adey. On the front free endpaper, the inscription reads: For Ponsonby / from / Robert Ross / Feb 26th 1906 . Just a very good copy, albeit quite heavily foxed on the preliminary pages, yet the book's 151 pages following the Preface (plus the Methuen ads following) are quite clean and presentable. The book is housed in a stunning deep blue custom clamshell box of full oasis morocco, gilt ruled, raised bands, rich gilt foliage ornamentation, leather bands, gilt titles. A thoroughly elegant and impressive presentation as befits this significant literary treasure. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-4535086977

Item Description: Leonard Smithers, 1899. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First Edition. First Printing. This is the first impression, which was limited to 1,000 copies. This original binding is bound in pale salmon cloth with gilt leaf stamping to panels. The cloth has wear at the extremities, rubbing and minor fraying. The corners are bumped and the spine ends are softened. There is what seems to be a stain from a glass on the bottom of the front board, and there is a very small burn mark to the back board near the spine. The pages are crisp and flat, having browned just slightly with age. The front inside cover is inscribed, "To La Belle Francaise 'Baby'" from "T--L--Y." (After extensive research, I think T-L-Y might be someone who was involved with the English or American theater scene in the 1940's or '50's.) There is a small contemporary note right above it, marked "Feb. 1901." Other than those two markings, the interior of the book is untouched and in wonderful condition. Overall, a lovely copy of this rare book in collector's condition. Trades and offers considered. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-5144204774

One of the regular issue of 1,000 copies. Wilde's final play and his comic masterpiece was written in 1894. Within two weeks of its opening in February 1895, Wilde began his ill-conceived libel trial against the Marquis of Queensbury which lead to Wilde's trial for homosexuality and subsequent imprisonment. As a consequence, the play was not published until after Wilde's release in 1898. Bookseller Inventory # 65893
