The Picture of Dorian Gray is presented here in its rare original incarnation, the overtly homoerotic Lippincott edition, with an appendix sampling Wilde’s later revisions. Also included is a brilliant introduction by Jeremy Reed, detailing the two editions and realigning the book’s position in the history of subversive underground fiction.
 
With its outré elements of homosexuality, drug abuse and supernatural horror, The Picture of Dorian Gray remains Wilde’s most extreme creation, whilst also containing many of the mordant epigrams for which he is most renowned. It is a true classic of renegade literature.
 
With a cover illustration by Aubrey Beardsley, this is the first available edition of The Picture of Dorian Gray in its original, uncut form--the Lippincott edition.
