Item Description: London, [1898], 1898. First edition of Wilde's legendary poem, written while he was in jail, in its rarest state - being one of only 30 copies printed on Japanese vellum. This copy comes from the distinguished library of the actress LENA ASHWELL (1872-1957), who as a young actress toured in Wilde's LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN in 1891, later becoming actor-manager of the Savoy Theatre. According to her biographer, Margaret Leask (LENA ASHWELL: ACTRESS, PATRIOT, PIONEER, Univ. of Hertfordshire Press, 2012), Ashwell was particularly troubled by the news of Wilde's arrest, and wrote later: "- the atmosphere of London was horrible and cruel. His plays were so very brilliant, and I had seen this when I was in LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN, so I felt that he was a friend and in desperate trouble." Later, during WWI, she is known to have pioneered the organization of entertainments on a large scale for the British troops in France. An excellent association copy of an essential Wilde rarity First edition, ONE OF 30 COPIES on Japanese vellum. 8vo. . Cinnamon- colored cloth, vellum spine. Covers show slight insect damage and minor soiling, spine a bit soiled, otherwise a very good copy in a quarter blue morocco slipcase with chemise and with the bookplate and signature of actress LENA ASHWELL on the front pastedown.

Item Description: Printed for the members of the Limited Editions Club at the Harbor Press, New York, 1937. Hardcover. 279 x 184 mm (11 x 7 1/4"). xii, 42 pp. No. 1,303 of 1,500 copies, signed by the artist in the colophon. EVOCATIVE BLACK MOROCCO BY ROGER POWELL (stamp-signed and dated 1984 on rear turn-in), covers with an all-over grid of blind rules, large "T"-shaped central gilt ornament of multiple rules, this repeated as a small blind stamp below, flat spine with vertical gilt titling, all edges gilt. In the original morocco-trimmed chemise and matching slipcase. With nine lithographs by Zhenya Gay depicting prison life. "Quarto-Millenary" 87. In mint condition. In a very effective correlation of cover design and volume content, Wilde's haunting poem is clearly echoed in this severe, somber binding by the man Bernard Middleton has called "one of the most important and influential bookbinders of the last hundred years and, arguably, of any period." The all-over blind-tooled grid on the boards effectively suggests the tight restriction of prison bars, and the gilt tooling intimates a crucifixion, appropriate for a poem about both execution and the redemptive power of Christ's love. Roger Powell (1896-1990) served in World War I and briefly operated a chicken farm before entering London's Central School of Arts and Crafts in 1930. There, he trained under Peter McLeish, William Matthews, and the great Douglas Cockerell, who later invited Powell to join his firm, where he soon became a full partner. As an indication of the esteem his work had earned, he was chosen by Trinity College Dublin to rebind their priceless Book of Kells in 1953, and the result was so impressive that the college awarded him an honorary Master of Arts degree. As his career progressed, Powell became more and more concerned with conservation. According to DNB, "for Powell the conservation and design aspects of the craft were complementary, . . . and while many binders have, since the 1950s or 1960s, increasingly been drawn to treat the book as an art object, Powell was always highly resistant" to any design elements that might jeopardize a book's use or durability. A long poem in six-line rhymed stanzas, "The Ballad of Reading Gaol" was written in France in 1897 after Wilde's release from prison. Written in memory of Charles Wooldridge, who was executed in 1896 for killing his wife in a jealous rage, it is generally considered to be Wilde's greatest poem. Day identifies the poem's theme as "society's cruelty in inflicting of punishment without understanding." Despite the stigma attached to Wilde at the time (or perhaps because of the publicity related to his infamy), the poem was a considerable commercial success. It also was hailed by the critics as a successful change in direction in Wilde's poetry, characterized by a much greater expression of sincerity. No. 1,303 of 1,500 copies, signed by the artist in the colophon. Bookseller Inventory # ST12573

Item Description: Falaize, (Paris), 1952. Softcover. First Edition. An out-of-series copy of this bilingual edition of 3000 numbered copies of Wilde's poem, printed here with Camus' "L'Artiste en Prison," which delineates Wilde's journey from themes of ideal beauty to existential suffering. Inscribed by Camus (in French): "to Sylvestre,/ a remembrance of Iguape/ and with the friendly thoughts/ of Albert Camus." While context does not give explanation to the reference to Iguape, one of Camus' last stories, "The Growing Stone" -- the final story in Camus' last collection, Exile and the Kingdom -- is set in Iguape, Brazil. It has been said that this story is the clearest manifestation of Camus' ideals: in it, the protagonist sacrifices himself to help a friend, and behaves morally despite his own understanding of the absurdity of the world. Camus won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957, the year Exile and the Kingdom was published, and the Prize committee cited his "clear-sighted earnestness [which] illuminates the problems of the human conscience in our times." As best we can tell, this is the first appearance in print of "L'Artiste en Prison," which was translated into English and published in Encounter magazine two years later. A very near fine copy in French wraps. Books inscribed by Camus are uncommon; the author died in 1960 in a car accident, at the age of 46. Bookseller Inventory # 030104

Item Description: London Leonard Smithers 1898, 1898. First edition, one of 800 copies printed on handmade paper. 8vo, publisher's original quarter buff cloth over mustard coloured cloth covered boards, the spine lettered in gilt [8] pp. plus 31 numbered leaves, printed and paginated on the recto only. A fine copy, only a hint of mellowing to the buff cloth. THE FIRST EDITION, LIMITED TO 800 COPIES ON FINE, HANDMADE PAPER. Inspired by his experiences while in prison and written while in exile in France, THE BALLAD OF READING GAOL was Wilde's last artistic gasp. Because of his sobering position at the time, the poem is free from a great deal of the affectation that colored his earlier work. "Had [it] been written a hundred years ago, it would have been printed as a broadside and sold in the streets by the balladmongers; it is so common as that, and so great as that" (Jackson, The Eighteen-Nineties, p. 99). ".He did not wring his hands, as do Those witless men who dare To try to rear the changeling Hope In the cave of black Despair: He only looked upon the sun, And drank the morning sun. He did not wring his hands nor weep, Nor did he peek or pine, But he drank the air as though it held Some healthful anodyne; With open mouth he drank the sun As though it had been wine!.".

Item Description: Leonard Smithers, London, 1898. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. One of 800 copies on handmade Van Gelder paper. A Very Good copy with the spine toned (as usual) and minor soiling to the boards. Decorative bookplate of Clement K. Shorter on the front paste-down. Wilde's later work, based on his two years hard labor at Reading Gaol for "gross indecency." Published under the pseudonym "C. 3. 3." for his cell block because the publisher feared having his name on the work would adversely affect sales. The poem is based on a fellow inmate convicted of murdering his wife and generated one of the great lines from Wilde, "Yet each man kills the thing he loves." Wilde continued to revise his plays until his death in 1900, but said that he had lost the joy of writing and would write no other new works. An excellent copy, housed in a handsome slipcase with chemise. Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 1247

Item Description: Leonard Smithers, London, 1898. Cream Cloth. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. 31pp. First edition. One of eight hundred copies, which have been printed on hand-made paper. A scarce first edition of Oscar Wilde's famous gaol work where he used the pseudonym C.3.3.Original publisher's quarter cream cloth over brown cloth covered boards. The cream cloth is sunned, soiled and stained - the gilt title to the spine is faint and only just legible. The brown cloth has faired a lot better - all four corners are a little turned in and the rear board carries a vertical crease with light associated damage to the rear paste-down. There are open splits to the inner hinge between several gatherings - though all gatherings are holding reasonably firmly. The pages are relatively free from foxing but there is some finger soiling to the pages - nothing heavy so the pages given a light clean could be improved further. A good copy of a scarce sought after first edition in its original publisher's cloth. Shipping from the UK. Bookseller Inventory # 228143
