* This fine bibliophile book contains a passionate article written by Lord Alfred Douglas in August, 1895, for his incarcerated friend Oscar Wilde, for the Mercure de France. However, the article was withdrawn at the last minute and long considered lost. A manuscript of the French translation survived and was re-translated into English. It is followed by Douglas' reminiscences of Wilde's last years in Paris. A first edition of Lord Alfred Douglas!
