WILDE, Oscar. The Writings of Oscar Wilde


1 in stock

Twelve volumes. New York: Gabriel Wells, 1925. Demy octavo. Titlepages printed in blue and black, each with a pale blue profile portrait of Wilde in the centre. Half-titles and imprint pages present. Superbly bound in contemporary half red morocco, over cloth sides ruled in gilt. Spines divided into six panels by five gilt raised bands, author and title in gilt direct in the second and third, the remainder tooled in gilt to a centre-and-corner design with diamond-shaped black onlays in centre; comb-marbled endpapers; red and gold endbands. Endpapers very lightly tanned and some scattered spots of mild foxing in some volumes, really very mild indeed, tips of corners occasionally bumped, again barely perceptible. This set numbered 134 of 575 numbered copies (25 of which not for sale). A handsome and desirable set.
