About this Item

Octavo [20.5 cm] Beige cloth covered boards with green gilt stamped spine labels. Top edges gilt. Other edges deckled. Nine of the volumes in very good condition and six volumes are in good condition. The extremities are ever so slightly soiled, and have very sporadic small light stains. The spines are occasionally rolled slightly forward or back. The spine labels are rubbed, and sometimes faded. Minor bumping to the spine ends and corners. The pages are clean and bright. The text blocks of six of the volumes are cracked near the beginning or center (one is cracked twice). The majority of the bindings are very tight. There is a 1 and 1/2 inch long closed tear in the front free endsheet of The Decay of Lying. Illustrated. Number 774 of 1000 numbered sets. Oscar Wilde was deeply affected by beauty and lived and dressed flamboyantly compared to the typical Victorian fashions and mores of the time. He was widely caricatured and became the target of much moral outrage in Europe and America. His writings such as The Picture of Dorian Gray with homo erotic undertones also brought much controversy for him. Despite all of this, he played an important part in the ever-growing movement of 'decadents' who believed in pacifism, social reform, and libertarianism. Extra charges apply due to size and weight.
