Oscar Wilde is one of my favourite authors - I love The Portrait of Dorian Gray but my favourite play is The Importance of Being Earnest. I love all the quick wit - Wilde is King of dialogue! So when I was looking to expand my collection of beautiful Barnes and Noble Leatherbound Classics (Alice and Wonderland haul and review here) I decided to go with this Wilde edition!
The cheapest place I found to buy this edition was Amazon, here.
Overall the book is a gorgeous! It's ornate and heavy and feels higher quality than its price point. It contains a good selection of Wilde's works and definitely a worthwhile purchase for both Wilde fans and those who collect Barnes and Noble Leatherbound Classics!
The style of the book is ornate but not over the top. It's understated compared to the Alice edition which is crazy and pink. Thought has clearly went into the design, which is elegant and reflective of the times, I particularly love the gold edging.
This is edition is more than just The Picture of Dorian Gray - as you probably guessed from the sheer size of it! There is an insightful introduction, story collections (Lord Arthur Saville's Crime and Other Stories, The Happy Prince and Other Tales, A House of Pomegranates), plays (The Importance of Being Earnest, Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, Salome, The Duchess of Padua, A Florentine Tragedy and others)
