This is just a warning to prospective kindle customers - the kindle version of this book is not "lavishly illustrated" which is not so surprising in a digital edition. But what was more surprising to me, Nicholas Frankel's extensive notes, which run alongside the text and which exceed the actual length of the novel itself, are not included. In fact, both the paperback and kindle editions are 'reader's editions'. Yes, there are two rich scholarly introductions, replete with notes, and some three pages of notes to the actual text (which are also included in the hardback) , but the "annotations" which have excited so much comment from reviewers are in fact missing from the kindle edition. There was no warning from Amazon that the kindle edition omits the textual notes that run side by side with the text in the hardback. However, when I pointed this out to Amazon, 'they' very generously offered me a certificate for the amount of the book on my next purchase. So that was very nice.

In fact Stonewall Riot Press has a complete, uncensored "reader's" edition on Amazon for 9.19. The editor himself, JOHN MCARTHUR, praises Nicholas Frankel's annotations:

"I was already at work on my edition of the text when I received my copy of Nicholas Frankel's P-book edition published in 2011 by Harvard University Press. Though I was somewhat dismayed at having been scooped, I could only admire the quality and thoroughness of Professor Frankel's scholarship. His notes, which run alongside the text, exceed it in length, and he also provides lavish illustrations and other resources. I heartily recommend this edition for readers seeking a scholarly edition for research purposes. I frankly cannot see how it can be superseded."

A very generous endorsement, but for those who are seeking a scholarly edition, you will only find it in the original hardback.

Beyond just the text, this edition gives a wonderful overview into the full cultural context of Oscar Wilde's original work, and all the influences that resulted in its changes.

I appreciated the ability to read the story as Wilde intended, and was shocked by the difference. This is an important work for Wilde scholars.
