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.

[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.
