This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
A reissue of the only selection of Oscar Wilde's epigrams produced in his lifetime.
In 1895 Arthur Humphreys - a director of Hatchards and a friend of Oscar Wilde - printed fifty copies of a small eighty-eight-page compendium of Wilde's epigrams, culled from his published works. It was titled Oscariana . The initial selection had been made by Wilde's wife, Constance, but Wilde had not been entirely satisfied with it, and subsequently revised the whole text. A pirated edition of a further two hundred copies of the book was produced in 1903, but otherwise it has remained out of print - until now. This new publication of Oscariana is a facsimile of this booklet, and the only selection of Wilde's wit endorsed and chosen by the author himself.
