1st Edition. This is a first edition copy of the first reprint of Oscar Wilde: A Critical Study, by Arthur Ransome. The original printing of the title was in 1912, but due to a libel suit against the author, was removed from shelves and then released as a reprint (according to the author's note in the book). The book is in very good condition.
