Description:
London: Methuen & Co Ltd, 1949 Book. Near Fine. Full-Leather. First Thus. No 192 of 195 copies printed and specially bound for The Collector's Book Club, numbered and signed in blue ink by the author's son on the limitation page which precedes the half-title. Bound in crushed burgundy morocco with gilt decoration to the upper cover, marbled endpapers and silk bookmark, internally fine, binding near fine. The book describes itself as 'the first complete and accurate version of 'Epistola: in Carcere et Vinculis' the last prose work in English of Oscar Wilde' although the textual verdict on this version is that there are flaws which escaped correction until the edition of 1962. Vyvyan Holland contributes an introduction. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information..
