Oscar Wilde
OSCAR WILDE - THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY - 1890 - FIRST EDITION - THUS - RARE
1890. For sale is an excessively rare and remarkable volume indeed, this being The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde. Privately Printed, 1890. Collated as complete. Slim 8vo. Bound in it's original light grey cloth, with the title in red to a paper label to the spine. All page edges uncut. Original plain endpapers. Externally the cloth is in pleasing order; the hinges and gutters are intact and firm, and it does not lean at all. As one can see in the photos, it is 'sunned' somewhat. Internally it remains complete, and the pages are generally nice and bright. Occasional spotting in places, but this is to be expected with such a volume. The paper used is of high quality, and feels well in the hand. Overall, this is such a rarity, and it will grace any collection. It is not only one of only a handful printed (in the same year as the first trade edition), but it is Wilde's only novel. A must have for the collector. We very highly recommend it. [Attributes: First Edition]
