De Profundis. Being the First Complete and Accurate Version of ‘Epistola: in Carcere et Vinculis’ the last prose work in English of Oscar Wilde. With an Introduction by Vyvyan Holland. London, Methuen and Co. Ltd. 1949. First Edition. Cloth boards in publisher’s dust jacket printed in red & black. Light wear to jacket, contents clean & bright.

This edition of “De Profundis” is taken from one of two typed versions Ross had done from Wilde’s manuscript and which he bequeathed to Vyvyan Holland. It is considerably fuller than the 1905 Methuen edition, but it was not until the publication of the Hart-Davis 1962 edition of Wilde’s letters that a reliable transcription of De “Profundis” taken from the original manuscript in the British Library appeared.
