The appearance of this first volume in the new Oxford series of Wilde's complete works is a significant event for all students of the writer. For the first time, all Wilde's known surviving poems are collected together, including twenty-one which were not published during his lifetime (Review of Engish Studies)
The editorial apparatus is meticulous and exhaustive ... As ancillary evidence for Wilde's later importance as a major cultural phenomenon, they [the poems] will reward more serious attention from scholars than they have previously received, and to that end this edition will deservedly become a standard work (Review of Engish Studies)

SO, the book i received is the not the one showed : the cover is different. But it really doesn't matter because it's still nice. The inside contents are well presented, nice and cosy to read.
It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Thumbs up !
Two stars, because I do not have the heart to give anything associated with Wilde one star.
