Description

2 volumes. First of the edition and a very early American issue. Engraved frontispiece of the Bard and many black and white engravings throughout. Tall 8vo, three quarter contemporary black straight-grain morocco over green pebbled cloth boards, the spine with raised bands gilt lined and decorated, lettered in gilt in two compartments, marbled endpapers. 522; 596pp. A very handsome and attractive early American issuance of Shakespeare’s works, with only light aging. A very well preserved set. A NICE EARLY AMERICAN SET. “The object then of the present publication is to afford the general reader a correct edition of Shakespeare, accompanied by an abridged commentary, in which all superfluous and refuted explanations and conjectures, and all controversies and squabbles of contending critics should be omitted; and such elucidations only of obsolete words and obscure phrases, and such critical illustrations of the text as might be deemed most generally useful be retained” [preface]. And so it accomplishes its goal. The editor also includes a section on the life of Shakespeare, an elegy written by Ben Jonson, and a reprint of the Bard’s famous will in which he bequeaths to his wife his “second best bed, with the furniture.”
