[WILDE, Oscar (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills), 1854-1900] : THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST : A TRIVIAL COMEDY FOR SERIOUS PEOPLE. BY THE AUTHOR OF LADY WINDERMERE’S FAN.

London : Leonard Smithers & Co., 1899. First edition : limited to 1,000 copies – this copy not numbered and out of series. Wilde’s most famous and most enduring play, published quasi-anonymously after his fall from grace, just eighteen months before he died.
Foolscap 4to (212 x 150mm). [xvi],(152)pp. Bound in a smart recent half sprinkled calf, banded and gilt; red labels; marbled sides; text with some light marking and fingering in places, but a good copy in an attractive binding. Discreet blind stamps of Wigan Free Public Library at front and rear, with small and neat shelfmark to verso of title.
