Edition De LuxeOne of Five Hundred Copies Signed by Edmund Dulac[DULAC, Edmund, illustrator]. SHAKESPEARE, William. Shakespeare's Comedy of The Tempest. With Illustrations by Edmund Dulac. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1908. Edition de Luxe. Limited to 500 numbered copies (this being #0000) signed by Edmund Dulac. Large quarto (11 1/8 x 9 inches; 280 x 225 mm.). xxiv, 143, [1] pp. Forty color plates, including frontispiece, mounted on dark green art paper with captioned tissue guards. Five black and white headpieces for each act. Publisher's full vellum with gilt lettering, vignette, and decoration. Some light marginal foxing, later silk ties. An excellent copy."Dulac. was working on illustrations for The Tempest which Hodder and Stoughton were to release at Christmas as one of a series of Shakespeare plays on quarto volumes. Dulac's illustrations were much brighter. His feeling for the picture as a whole seemed more convincing and showed greater human understanding as the illustrations moved beyond stage scenes and became mood pictures or tone poems."Dulac's greater assurance in The Tempest was manifested on many beautifully observed scenes" (White, p. 36).Hughey 19.

A fine copy in the original tan dust jacket printed in dark brown and with a copy of the color plate facing p. 66 pasted on to the front panel. Slight chipping at head and tail of jacket spine, otherwise fine."Dulac.was working on illustrations for The Tempest which Hodder and Stoughton were to release at Christmas as one of a series of Shakespeare plays on quarto volumes.Dulac's illustrations were much brighter.His feeling for the picture as a whole seemed more convincing and showed greater human understanding as the illustrations moved beyond stage scenes and became mood pictures or tone poems."Dulac's greater assurance in The Tempest was manifested on many beautifully observed scenes" (White, p. 36).The book is scarcely seen in its dust jacket. Hughey does not even record that the book was issued in one. It may be that Hodder and Stoughton only used the misprinted dust jacket on a limited number of copies before deciding to scrap it.Hughey 19a. Bookseller Inventory # 03640
