THE BALLAD OF READING GAOL BY OSCAR WILDE

This famous and very moving poem by Oscar Wilde is illustrated by the well-known Art Deco illustrator John Vassos. The cover is not very preposessing, but the book is beautifully designed, and printed on heavy, dekel-edged paper, and the stylized Vassos illustrations are striking.  NY: EP Dutton & Co., 1928. Pages bound as issued in cloth binding. Some wear, staining to binding, paper slightly yellowed. 124 pages, some un-cut.
