All's Well That Ends Well

£14.99

Product description

All's Well That Ends Well is part of The Temple Shakespeare series by JM Dent, with a foreword by Israel Gollancz, and was published in 1894. We are told at the front that the text here is from the Cambridge Edition.

The book is bound in red cloth, with Shakespeare's coat of arms embossed in the centre of the front board, while the back board is plain. The spine has the title embossed in gold, written horizontally with two flower symbols at either end. The front internal hinge is torn. On the first endpaper is a black & yellow drawing of Shakespeare's coat of arms, with 'Non Sans Droict' (Not Without Right) written beneath. The next facing endpaper has an unreadable signature in ink, from a previous owner, stating, 'Hector . . . . ' All of the endpapers are foxed, particularly the second.

The first title page states 'the Temple Shakespeare' and has two diagrams, one of a lamb of God carrying a cross with a banner, and the other of Pegasus. Unfortunately, it a has a small black ink spot, which is reflected on the back of the opposite endpaper. The frontispiece has a drawing of a Courtyard of a Grammar School, covered by tracing paper (detached but undamaged) with a quotation from Coleridge's The Garden of Boccacio. On the opposite second title page, is the title and details of the publication within a decorated border. At the centre is a drawing of the play's central character, Helena. The title page is also protected by a piece of tracing paper, which is still attached. There is a quote about the play, on the back of the title page, by scholar Mrs Jameson.

The binding is mostly intact, but feels very delicate, as does much of the book. All of the page faces are clean, but the discoloration from the deckle-edges is visible. The back endpaper has a different version of Shakespeare's coat of arms and its inner facing page is very foxed (as with the equivalent at the front).
