For Christmas this year, a dear friend of mine gifted me with the beautiful volume pictured here, an Eastern Press limited edition of The Short Stories of Oscar Wilde. I was simply enthralled by this book (her words were most apt) when I saw it in a used bookstore shelf but I could not afford to grab it AND the limited edition The Flowers of Evil by Baudelaire as well. So my friend followed behind me and picked it up, telling me that I could borrow it whenever I liked. This did not surprise me, as she is a library science master’s student and just as obsessed with books as I am.
So when this book was given to me for Christmas, all I could do was gasp in rapture over it. I have never owned a book this beautiful and I am looking forward to reading all the stories it holds.
Thank you, my dear. This is wonderful!
