While best known for his comedies of the 1890s, including The Importance of Being Earnest
, Oscar Wilde was a master of many forms. This grand reproduction of a rare 1910 edition includes five of his very best fairy tales: "The Happy Prince," "The Nightingale and the Rose," "The Selfish Giant," "The Devoted Friend," and "The Remarkable Rocket." Charles Robinson, one of the most successful artists of the Golden Age, enhances the text with 12 remarkable full-color plates and scores of other line drawings: decorated initial caps, illustrated vignettes, and other embellishments.
A Calla Edition, originally published by Brentano's, New York, 1910.
