Here is another jewel in the collection of The Morgan Library & Museum in New York: a red-leather bound volume of handwritten pages, by Oscar Wilde himself. The book includes letters and manuscripts. It is a wonderful addition to the already impressive Wilde collection at the Morgan, alongside the earliest manuscript of The Picture of Dorian Gray and the only surviving letter from Wilde to his wife, Constance.

Speaking of Constance, isn’t it fascinating to think that she may have been the author of “The Selfish Giant”? With Wilde acting as editor? So very interesting.
