Mirage. In Three Volumes.
George Fleming [Julia Constance Fletcher]:

Mirage. In Three Volumes.

London: Macmillan, 1877. First edition. viii, 260; vi, 277; vi, 279. Bound without half-titles. Endpapers browned, and bearing the early ownership name of J.K.[H?] Hichens [of Beech Grove, Sunninghill, Berks] in each volume. Foxing to titles and to a few other pages, but contents otherwise very fresh. Edges sprinkled. Octavo, in contemporary half red leather, spine ruled and titled in gilt, marbled boards rubbed. Spines refurbished. A very nice set of the novel famous for its pseudonymous celebration of the author's recent youthful friendship with Oscar Wilde, reciprocated the following year by Wilde's dedication of his early poem 'Ravenna' to the present author. Very Good.
