"No man of sound sense ever writes unintelligibly, and no true poet ever makes inharmonious verses. Shakespeare was both; and yet in his plays we meet with passages which are devoid of meaning, and lines without any poetic melody. The natural inference then is, that these defects are due not to him, but to transcribers and printers, and it becomes the duty of the critic to endeavour to discover and bring back the real words of the poet." ---- from the Preface.

However, the gold & black text is still bright. Illustrated with one chromlithographic plate in bright colours and a small portrait of Shakespeare. A very good copy of this scarce work. ** Mclean, Design, p.108 & 110, "the single coloured plate . is in fact very fine". *** ". this was one the first of the so-called `papier mache' bindings, contrived to look like carved ebony. The result was splendidly gothic and impressive." 'Noel Humphreys' designs are in fact very interesting and deserve study. They are very warm and natural, in comparison with the more inellectual abstractions of Owen Jones. Noel Humphreys has captured some of the medieval Flemish illuminators' spirit but has added to it an inventiveness and artistry of his own, based on an artist's feeling for the strange intricacies of flower and leaf, backed by a naturalist's knowledge.' - McLean, Victorian Book Design **** Henry Noel Humphreys (1810-1879), was a British illustrator, naturalist,entomologist , and numismatist. Humphreys, who studied medieval manuscripts in Italy as a young man, became an accomplished scholar in numerous subjects. In addition to his entomological texts, Humphreys wrote works on ancient Greek and Roman coins , archaeology, and the art of writing and printing.". Bookseller Inventory # 40712
