The Plays of Shakespeare

Very good example of this four volume subscription only edition of William Shakespeare’s plays dedicated to Henry Irving from around 1890 in its original green cloth with gilt blocking to the boards and all edges gilt. There is slight edge wear to the bevel-edged boards and the text and plates are very clean. The great actors of the day are illustrated in photogravure portraits with Ellen Terry as Beatrice opposite the first title page, Henry Irving as Shylock etc. All twenty eight plates are present and in fine condition.
