by [Wilde, Oscar]: Greve, Felix Paul [a.k.a. Frederick Philip Grove]
Berlin: Gose & Tetzlaff, Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1903. 46,pp. Decorated printed wrappers. Upper wrapper faintly soiled, a couple leaves opened slightly carelessly (but otherwise largely unopened), very good. First edition, issued as "Hefte 29" of MODERNE ESSAYS, edited by Hans Landsberg. A somewhat early work by an author perhaps even more intriguing and controversial than its subject, published roughly coincident with his imprisonment for debt and a few years before he fled Germany with his married mistress (later "dadaist" Elsa von Freytag- Loringhoven) and his eventual refashioning of himself as the prolific western Canadian novelist, F.P. Grove. A translation into English was published by bookseller William Hoffer in 1984. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76233)
