8vo. 4 volumes, set. Original brown quarter buckram with marbled paper boards, gilt. With the original slipcase and glassine wrappers. Illustrated by Reynolds Stone. Glassine wrappers have several very short closed tears. The slipcase is a bit worn. A lovely set in near fine condition.
‘The text and order of the First Folio with Quarto variants and a choice of modern readings noted marginally: to which are added Pericles and the First Quartos of six of the plays with three plays of doubtful authorship: also the Poems according to the original Quartos and Octavos.’ Published, with decorations by Reynolds Stone, to celebrate the dawn of the Second Elizabethan Age, this is the perfect gift edition.
