Millard (Stuart Mason), and the Younger Son of Oscar Wilde. One of 100 special copies. 4to., original cloth backed boards, printed label on spine. London: Dulau & Company Limited, n.d.,

Original coarse canvas spine with printed spine label and tan paper over boards. Spine just a little darkened, slight chipping to spine label, internally tight and immaculate. All items are individually priced, and this copy still has, loosely inserted, the printed slip saying that the manuscript portion was being offered en bloc initially but that they will take individual orders and fulfil them in the event of it not selling. It did sell intact, and is now the nucleus of the wonderful William Andrews Clark collection in Los Angeles.
