Description

Limited edition, numbered 11 of only 300 pages printed. 

'Lord Arthur Savile's Crime' is a short story collection written by Oscar Wilde. The trade edition was issued with 'The Canterville Ghost', 'The Sphinx Without a Secret' and 'The Model Millionaire'. This is a privately printed edition of the story, which later became a play by Constance Cox.

The first separate edition of this book, which Mason states is a pirated edition produced by Leonard Smithers and/or 'Wright and Jones'.
