The Importance of Being Earnest
London: Samuel French Ltd, 26 Southampton St., n.d. [c.1900].. French's Acting Edition, 'The Dramatic Works of Oscar Wilde' No.1. Pp.[vi]; 52; [2], advertisements. Publisher's decorative pale green paper covers printed in black with 'Gothic' title in three lines (some show the title over two lines, priority unknown). Original price 1d,.6s. with later label 'revised price 2/-net.' Text features a few marginal stage directions/notes in pencil plus a neat pencil sketch to half-title. Some trivial handling but essentially a fine copy bearing the ownership signature of A.P.A. Pidcock-Henzell to front wrapper. An uncommon printing, conforming to Mason's 'later impression' featuring the three added preliminary leaves, sewn construction and a revised address on the imprint. We have located other copies but none with this particular Gothic typography on the cover
