1913* SHAKESPEARE. Dramatic Works. Life and Essay by T. Campbell.

8vo, mor.,

London, 1838

Various readings on margins by the present possessor. 1914*SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM. THE PLAYS AND POEMS OF, WITH HIS ATTRIBUTED WORKS. PRIVATELY ILLUSTRATED COPY. 46 vols. imp. 8vo, London, V. D.







This copy is thus described in "The Private Libraries of New York: "An illustrated Shakespeare, formed by uniting the Pictorial [Knight's], the Illustrated [Kenny Meadows], and Routledge's [John Gilbert], the three impressions of each play being brought together, and hundreds of engravings of all periods and styles having been added. The illustrations have been selected for their beauty and interest, not collected indiscriminately, only a print or two having been sometimes taken from a set. They include a complete set of the illustrations to Rowe's edition, 1709, which show the costume, and in some cases the action, with which these plays were presented at that period."

The hundreds of prints mentioned in this description were many hundreds, and their number has been largely increased by important additions, and also by letters from eminent Shakespearian editors and scholars, since the publication of that volume. The selection mentioned refers only to compositions and imaginative heads; it would obviously be futile in the case of portraits, and views of places and buildings. This book is not yet ready for the binder.
