About this Item

One of 500 unnumbered copies "for private circulation only, among friends and subscribers". Full vellum line and lettered in black, title on spine and large "O.W." on front cover. Top edge stained red and other edges uncut. Title page printed in red and black. Translated into English by Sebastian Melmoth (pseudonym of Oscar Wilde). This is now considered to be a spurious Wilde piece; the Paris bookseller who printed it, Charles Carrington, apparently invented the Wilde connection in order to spur sales. The four page foreword has Wilde (who had died two years earlier) as its subject. A tight, very good or a bit better example, spine a bit darkened and some very light soining to the vellum. Carrington's bookshop label is affixed to the rear free endpaper. Bookseller Inventory # E7173
