Item Description: Stratford-on-Avon The Shakespeare Head Press 1904-1906, 1906. Ten quarto volumes. This set is one of only twelve printed on pure vellum with a frontispiece illustration in each volume. It represents a monumental undertaking, which took four years to complete and consumed about 250 sheets for each of the twelve copies printed on vellum. The Shakespeare Head Press was founded by A. H. Bullen, who had the idea of printing the complete works of Shakespeare at Stratford-on-Avon as the result of a dream in which he was presented with a set of Shakespeare's works while visiting the town. This is the first edition of Shakespeare to have been published in Stratford and the first major publication of the Press. Although other Shakespeare Head Press sets printed on vellum regularly appear on the market, the Shakespeare is very difficult to obtain: the last copy on vellum to come to auction was in 1960. Volumes I and II are lacking the silk fore-edge ties, spine lettering a trifle rubbed on volume VI, else a fine copy in creamy full limp vellum stamped in gilt. (Tomkinson p. 229, Ransom p. 9).

Item Description: John and Josiah Boydell, London, 1803. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. First Edition; First Printing. Elephant folio first edtion of Boydell's Shakespeare prints (52) . A landmark work in British engraving. In original half-leather boards and cloth, of which the leather is separating and deteriorated, and the cloth tattered (although front titles still clear) ; front board detached. The prints themselves are stunning despite dampstains affecting the upper third beginning at top corner, and a further two small sections at lower edge; stains fade progressively from front of book to rear; on darker prints the staining is more subtle. Paper is still bright and crisp, and largely free of foxing. Pictures on request. (There is a smaller folio edition, 17x22" of Boydell's Shakespeare, but this is the first larger elephant folio edition of 1803). ; Vol. 2; 22 x 28"; Wikipedia: The idea of a grand Shakespeare edition was conceived during a dinner at the home of Josiah Boydell (John's nephew) in late 1786. [18] Five important accounts of the occasion survive. [19] From these, a guest list and a reconstruction of the conversation have been assembled. The guest list reflects the range of Boydell's contacts in the artistic world: it included Benjamin West, painter to King George III; George Romney, a renowned portrait painter; George Nicol, bookseller to the king; William Hayley, a poet; John Hoole, a scholar and translator of Tasso and Aristotle; and Daniel Braithwaite, secretary to the postmaster general and a patron of artists such as Romney and Angelica Kauffmann. Most accounts also place the painter Paul Sandby at the gathering. [20]Boydell wanted to use the edition to help stimulate a British school of history painting. He wrote in the "Preface" to the folio that he wanted "to advance that art towards maturity, and establish an English School of Historical Painting". [21] A court document used by Josiah to collect debts from customers after Boydell's death relates the story of the dinner and Boydell's motivations: [Boydell said] he should like to wipe away the stigma that all foreign critics threw on this nation-that they had no genius for historical painting. He said he was certain from his success in encouraging engraving that Englishmen wanted nothing but proper encouragement and a proper subject to excel in historical painting. The encouragement he would endeavor to find if a proper subject were pointed out. Mr. Nicol replied that there was one great National subject concerning which there could be no second opinion, and mentioned Shakespeare. The proposition was received with acclaim by the Alderman [John Boydell] and the whole company (see fuller Wikipedia entry). Bookseller Inventory # 34972
