Comments: The Newdigate Prize Poem. First issue of Wilde's first book, with the crest on the front wrapper & title page, and autographed- "with the author's compliments". As with the other very small number of inscribed copies, this one has a vertical crease down the middle as if once folded to fit in the pocket of someone who attended the reading.
