This edition of Page One goes live at about the same time as the financial year comes to an end*. Charles Adrian turns to history, then, and digs out a few of his more interesting discoveries in this field, as well as a collected Oscar Wilde. This last is labelled Everyman’s Library number 858 and is covered in a dustcover of a somewhat oppressive green colour.

Correction: The end of the 2012-2013 financial year in the UK was the 5th April, not the 30th of April as stated in this episode.
