The Happy Prince and Other Stories


"The Collector's Colour Library" takes the favourite illustrated titles of "The Collector's Library" and presents them in full colour. Original colour illustrations are faithfully reproduced, and where illustrations and decorations were originally black and white they have been sensitively coloured by Barbara Frith, one of Britain's most accomplished colourists. The challenge and pleasure of Wilde's short stories is the simultaneous appeal to both child and adult with their themes of love, truth and sacrifice which are as relevant today as they were when they were written. From the comically unsuccessful and unhappy spook in "The Canterville Ghost" to the incompetent would-be murderer in "Lord Arthur Saville's Crime" we are treated to the extravagance and dexterity of Wilde's wit. Charles Robinson's colour plates are supplemented by Barbara Frith's colouring of drawings by Walter Crane, Jacomb Hood and others. Hide synopsis
