The Works of William Shakespeare Edited, With a Scrupulous Revision of the Text, by Charles and Mary Cowden Clarke

£250.00

Product description

Four volumes, half bound with green calf ridged spine and green calf corners, marbled boards. The spines originally had brown calf plates tipped-in to the spine backstrip which gave the volumes and full titles of the works contained; the four upper plates are now missing leaving just the blind-stamped volume name & number, the four lower plates are chipped and worn with only parts remaining but showing the blind-stamped titles below. The spines and corners have surface and edge wear with the underlying boards showing at the corner tips. The marbled boards have edge wear. Red page edges all round. The hinges are all sound and the text blocks appear to be little used. There is some foxing on the endpapers, particularly the title page of volume I which has a tanned rectangle from the opposite frontispiece portrait of Shakespeare. There is occasional foxing through the text blocks. Charles and Mary Cowden Clarke were well-known nineteenth century Shakespearean scholars. This is a scarce early four volume set.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
