Have you tried the email address in the Gutenberg file?

These are missing that particular volume:
http://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/011261032
http://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/011261033

This is not available:
http://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/100327200

This one at least looks like the same text:
http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?i...39015014614948

This has probably the same content too:
http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?i...33433107655205

Probably nothing you didn't know already.

Not yet, I will try that if everything else fails.

could be it! I was worried about variants in the American collection, but I found out that the “Authorised Edition” used stereotyped plates of the Methuen edition. I’m still not sure, though: according to Mason, it should say “Reviews | By Oscar Wilde | [Volume I or II] | Authorised Edition | John W. Luce & Co. | Boston” on the title page and this one is a one-volume book by “The Wyman-Fogg Company | Boston Massachussetts”, which isn’t mentioned in Mason. But then, everything else (including the pagination) is identical, so it’s probably the right one.

Thanks again!

I did some more research and I’m quite sure now that the Wyman-Fogg text is identical to the Methuen edition: I have compared The Happy Prince, and Other Stories, and not only do the pages look the same, but the misprints are identical, too.

Thorne Smith wrote the two Topper novels on which the movies (starring Roland Young as Topper) were based. There was also a TV show based on the character I believe.
