Salome. Drame en un acte.Paris & London: Librairie de l'Art Independant; Elkin Mathews & John Lane, 1893 Stock Code: 133806
First edition, trade issue. One of 600 copies in this issue, there were also 50 copies printed on handmade paper. Composed by Wilde in French and not published in English until the following year. A lovely copy of this delicate publication.
Octavo. Original purple wrappers, titles and decoration to front wrapper in silver, all edges untrimmed. Housed in a custom pale blue solander box.
A very good copy, with some browning to the margins of the wrappers but internally fresh. A couple of very small stab holes to the lower wrapper.
