The Works.

WILDE, Oscar.

London: Methuen & Co,, 1908-22. 15 volumes, octavo (214 x 145 mm). Recent green morocco, titles and decoration to spines gilt, roll to boards gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. An excellent set. First collected edition of Wilde's works, limited to 1,000 sets on handmade paper. The texts were mostly taken from the last editions to be supervised by the author. Copyright in The Picture of Dorian Gray was held by Charles Carrington, so that volume alone appears with his Paris imprint. In 1922 Methuen announced the discovery of a new play by Wilde, For Love of the King: a Burmese Masque, and published it as a pendant volume to the original 14-volume set. The play was denounced by Wilde's bibliographer Christopher Millard, and, although Methuen won a court case against him, the work is generally accepted to be a forgery by Mabel Wodehouse Pearse, née Cosgrove.

Dorian Grey is here published by Charles Carrington, who retained the copyright to this work but permitted it to be included in Methuen & Co.'s edition. This set consists of a mixture of later editions published between 1910 and 1913.
