About this Item

8vo. 34, xviii, 492, xv, 700 pp. Supposedly only 165 copies printed. An early anthology of synopses, adaptations and condensations including the stories of some of Shakespeare's best plays, legends, biographies, histories. This was a seminal source for readers of an earlier time. Attractive print. Mostly clean inside, with only occasional light soil marks and a few light stamps of a prior owner in the margins. The black morocco is scuffed and has rubbing along the edges and spine extremities. Still the contemporary binding remains handsome. Bookseller Inventory # 002078

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
