The Library Shakspeare

£60.00

Product description

These four gilt-edged volumes were originally part of a nine-volume set in which the plays were printed in such a way that the boundaries of each volume were disregarded. As a result in some cases a book might begin in the middle of a play and end in the middle of another. The COMPLETE plays contained in these four books are: Othello, Coriolanus, Julius Caesar, Antony and Cleopatra, The Taming of the Shrew, The Comedy of Errors, The Merchant of Venice, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Love's Labour's Lost, The Tempest, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Merry Wives of Windsor, Twelfth Night, Measure for Measure, Much Ado about Nothing, The Winter's Tale, All's Well that Ends Well, Macbeth, Troilus and Cressida. The principal value of these four books probably lies in the large number of illustrations, full-colour plates, black and white plates and intratextual pictures by John Gilbert, George Cruikshank and R. Dudley. The books are undated but are probably from the late nineteenth century.

Condition: All four volumes exhibit substantial shelf wear, especially to the top and bottom of the spines and to the corners, which are mostly bumped through to the boards. One page has detached from the textblock. No annotations or other markings.
