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: 1898. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Limited Edition. The Ballad of Reading Gaol. London: Leonard Smithers, 1898. First Edition Thus, one of 99 copies Signed by the Author (copy 49). Original white linen backed purple cloth with design in gilt on upper cover by Charles Ricketts, collector's light brown cloth slipcase. A very good copy. The elimination of self had its apogee in The Ballad of Reading Gaol. Its theme was the man hanged in Reading while Wilde was there, Charles Thomas Wooldridge (1866-1897), trooper of the Royal Horse Guards, who had murdered his wife.With high dramatic sense Wilde turned the sufferings of all the other convicts into a subordinate but supportive chorus. The poem made no denial of guilt, although its hanged prisoner ultimately suffered more than the rest, and embodied their agonies more intensely.' (Owen Dudley Edwards, Oxford DNB). Wilde first suggested this edition in a letter to his publisher dated 18 February 1898: '.why not print some copies on some special paper - not Japanese; that you have done. I want to distribute about ten copies in Paris, and don't like to give second editions to people ' (Complete Letters, p.1018). A week later, on 25 February 1898, Wilde asked Smithers to '.see about. the Author's Edition with a cover by Ricketts - a new colour and a remarque in gold' (Complete Letters, p.1025). The edition was sold at 10s.6d. and this led Wilde to complain: 'I think 10/6 for copies signed by the author too little. My signature should be worth more than Japanese paper. Think of this point.' (Complete Letters, p.1031). The signed leaves were returned to Smithers at the beginning of March 1898. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 46407

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. 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
