More Information
Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin on 16th October 1854 to an affluent, though somewhat notorious, family. He was educated at Trinity College Dublin and won a scholarship to Magdalen College Oxford where he graduated from with a double first. His life is well documented and far beyond the scope of this monograph but suffice is to say he was, and remains, a colossal figure in literature. This reputation is naturally translated into the value and desirability of his first editions. All are keenly sought by collectors, particularly anything signed. He died, impoverished, in Paris on 30th November 1900.
