A Woman of No Importance. Oscar Wilde.

A Woman of No Importance

London: John Lane, 1894. First edition. Hardcover. First edition, one of 500 copies only printed. Octavo in lavender cloth decorated in gilt and with spine lettered in gilt. Fore edges uncut. 154 pp. plus 16 pp. of adverts for List of Books in Belles Lettres. This copy bears the rather scarce small publisher’s bookplate on the front pastedown announcing “This Book Now Published by John Lane at the Bodley Head in Vigo St. London W.” Very good. Scattered foxing to the endpapers. Shallow wear to the spine extremities and spine a bit rubbed. Some rippling to the lower portion of the cloth on the front board. Very Good. Item #WE16716
