Oscar Wilde's controversial, haunting and impressionistic play inspired some of Aubrey Beardsley's finest work, despite the fact that the artist liked neither the play nor the author. Classic stylised fin de siecle
images support the text including an intricate frontispiece. This edition reprints the first edition as well as three drawings that were not originally used. The translation from the original French is by Lord Alfred Douglas - "Bosie".
This edition remains faithful to the original - being a full reproduction of the 1894 edition. Illustrations:
