The Conqueror of Time. [in] Time a Monthly Magazine. [v. 1] no. 1, Apr. 1879, p. [30]-31.
[London: April 1879]. 8vo, 128 pp. + ads. Original printed wrappers worn but sound. In a blue cloth slipcase. Wilde's poem "The Conqueror of Time" appears on pp.30-31. This publication seems to be of considerable rarity. We have located one copy sold ever anywhere in 1933 in NY at the AAA. No copy in auction records, no copy online. An ephemeral but obviously very early appearance of Wilde in print, recorded in WorldCat as Wilde's first appearance in print. Only two copies recorded -- at Yale and UCLA. Doubtless there are copies of the magazine that don't note Wilde's appearance; but this is a fabled rarity unknown to almost all his biographers and bibliographers. Reprinted, with revisions, as "Athanasia" in the author's Poems, 1881. From the UCLA catalogue: Cf. Clark, W.A. Wilde and Wildeiana. 1922-31. v. 3, p. 86; [Millard, C.S.] Bibliography of Oscar Wilde. London [1914] p. 211-212, no. 267. (OCLC) 10897615
