    DescriptionThis 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.

    Author Information
    Oscar Wilde was an Irish writer and poet whose plays were popular in London in the 1890s. His life was at times controversial, involving court cases and imprisonment. The Picture of Dorian Gray was initially ill-received thanks to its portrayal of decadent life, but is now viewed as a landmark of British literature.
