The Works of William Shakespeare: Revised by The Rev. Alexander Dyce.

£100.00

Product description

Alexander Dyce (30 June 1798 – 15 May 1869) was a Scottish dramatic editor and literary historian.

In 1857 his edition of Shakespeare was published by Moxon; and the second edition was issued by Chapman & Hall in 1866. He also published Remarks on Collier's and Knight's Editions of Shakespeare (1844); A Few Notes on Shakespeare (1853); and Strictures on Collier's new Edition of Shakespeare (1859), which ended the long friendship between Dyce and the literary scholar (and forger) John Payne Collier.

Dyce was closely connected with several literary societies in and around London.

This highly rare first edition (1857) full set is in fair condition. The binding is still tight, although there is heavy damage to the front and back boards and spines off volumes. With some of the leather patchy and missing from the spine. Please see the pictures for more details. We are happy for people to come and view this set before buying. Please Contact Oxfam Bloomsbury Bookshop for more information
