The Picture of Dorian Gray is a novel by Oscar Wilde, published in 1890. Fearing the story was indecent, the editor deleted roughly 500 words without Wilde's knowledge. Despite that censorship,  the book offended British book reviewers, some of whom said that he merited prosecution for violating public morality. If you are a collector of banned books, this philosophical novel is one you want on your shelf.
