The Importance of Being Earnest

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People

WILDE, Oscar

FIRST EDITION OF WILDE'S COMIC MASTERPIECE

WILDE, Oscar The Importance of Being Earnest A Trivial Comedy for Serious People

Leonard Smithers, 1899.

First edition. Original mauve cloth with gilt decoration to the covers and spine. A very good copy indeed with a little spotting to the edge of the front board and a trace of general dustiness, but still showing good colour and bright gilt. Some scattered foxing to occasional pages. A well preserved copy.

The author's most famous play and comic masterpiece. The first edition is limited to only 1000 copies which, due to the light colour of the cloth, are seldom now found in nice condition.
