Vintage Covers for Dorian Gray

Completely by accident I came across a great cover on a Spanish edition of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray online. One thing led to another and soon I am digging through auction and sale sites across Europe to find any others. There are hundreds of editions of the book, of course, in French, Italian, Spanish and many other languages but I tried to confine my little collection here to those I found which had a 'vintage' vibe to them. Not a comprehensive overview, just a bit of fun. Obviously most of them are typical 'pulp' stuff but I rather liked the very simple black, white and red offering below using both a dagger and an artist's palette.

Anyone who is inspired to buy the book by the last cover is going to be very disappointed!
