An Ideal Husband
London: Leonard Smithers & Co, 1899. First edition. Near Fine. One of one thousand copies printed. A lovely, Near Fine copy with trivial soiling on the boards, spine a touch faded and gift inscription/bookplates on the front end papers. Long gift inscription from Richard Todd, famous British stage and film actor who portrayed Viscount Goring in an adaptation of "An Ideal Husband" in the 1960s. Additional bookplate of Joseph Groves as well as a small clipping on Todd's career tipped in on front paste-down. An interesting copy in excellent condition. First performed on the stage in 1895, the year of Wilde's arrest. Despite public appreciation for the play, the run was cut short and the book was delayed four years. Recently adapted to film, starring: Julianne Moore, Minnie Driver, Jeremy Northam, Cate Blanchett and Rupert Everett. A play written by Wilde at the height of his powers. Near Fine.
