Everyone who aspires to be the possessor of even a few books, must regard a copy of Shakespeare’s Works as an indispensable portion of his literary treasures, and must desire to possess these immortal writings in a form worthy of them. This sets most distinctive, as well as most attractive feature consists in the pictorial illustrations with which it is so copiously enriched. These are upwards of 750 in number, and bring most vividly before the reader the scenes and incidents occurring in the different plays, presenting to the eye the varied panorama of human life which the genius of Shakespeare has painted in words.

The Works, Revised from the Best Authorities, with a Memoir and Essay on his Genius by Bryan W. Proctor (Barry Cornwall), Annotations and Introductory Remarks on the Plays by Distinguished Writers, and Numerous Illustrative Engravings from Designs by Kenny Meadows, T. H. Nicholson, Frith etc. A special issue supplied to subscribers only, large 4to, three volumes complete in nine bindings.

Each play with an illustrated title page and introductory remarks, with at least one very-detailed full-page engraving by one of the artists (made especially for this edition) and many smaller in the text by the other artist, each play followed by notes. –
