THE PLAYS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Accurately printed from the text of the corrected copy left by the late George Steevens, Esq.

Nine volumes. Octavo. Handsomely bound in contemporary full diced russia with gilt tooling and titles to the spine and rolled gilt rules to the boards and turn-ins. All edges marbled. Each volume with a silk page marker. Illustrated with 37 engraved plates after original designs by Henry Fuseli, including two engraved by William Blake (Romeo and Juliet, Henry VIII). A very good set indeed, the bindings square and firm with minor rubbing and wear to the joints, a little bumping to the corners and a dent to the head of the upper board of volume IV. The contents with a discrete ninenteenth-century French ink ownership stamp for "A.A. Beaujour, Rots" to each title page and the very occasional dot of foxing are otherwise clean and bright throughout. A splendid set.

A most attractive edition of Shakespeare's works, with a wonderful suite of illustrations by the Romantic artist Henry Fuseli, including two engraved by William Blake.
