Description

This is a beautiful leatherbound edition of Wilde's scandalous story of excess and corruption. It features a satin-ribbon bookmark, distinctive stained edging and decorative marbled endpapers. This edition of a novel now acknowledged a landmark of literature will be an artful addition to any home library. Horror hides behind an attractive face in "The Picture of Dorian Gray", Oscar Wilde's tale of a notorious Victorian libertine and his life of evil excesses. Though Dorian's hedonistic indulgences leave no blemish on his ageless features, the painted portrait imbued with his soul proves a living catalogue of corruption. Desperate to hide the physical evidence of his unregenerate spirit, Dorian will stop at nothing, not even murder, to keep his picture's existence a secret. A scandalous story when it was first published in 1890, Wilde's novel is acknowledged a landmark of literature today and a tale emblematic of its time. This exquisite collectible edition features an elegant bonded-leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, distinctive stained edging, and decorative marbled endpapers. It's the perfect gift for book-lovers and an artful addition to any home library.
