THE SONNETS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

First edition thus. Handsomely bound by Bayntun Riviere in full red morocco, the spine with five raised bands and titles in gilt to the spine, elaborate gilt turn-ins. Top edge gilt, the others untrimmed. Marbled endpapers. Printed on watermarked laid paper. Illustrated with an etched portrait frontispiece. A lovely fine copy, the binding square and tight, the contents with just the very occasional dot of light foxing are otherwise wonderfully clean and bright throughout. A superb copy.

A beautifully produced edition of Shakespeare's sonnets; the smart, understated Bayntun binding combining with the untrimmed edges to make a pleasingly tactile copy.
