About this Item

This play first appeared in print in a quarto in 1597 and a second quarto edition appeared in 1599 and is considered the best authority for the play. The text used in this edition is therefore based on "the authorized version" of 1599 and is used as the Romeo and Juliet volume in the Temple Shakespeare. This Heritage Press edition was published in 1935, is printed on expensive paper with both color and black and white illustrations, in large type and large pages (8"x11") with red geometric borders on each page. The book is a one-owner and in fine condition, having been protected by its slipcase. There is one slightly darkened stain on the blue front cover but no other flaws, no bumped corners, and no edgewear. On the inside of the second page, preceding the half title page, is a neatly printed inscription in ink from a previous owner,: "To Ruth---My Juliet, always, Your Edwin, September 13, 1937." The black leather binding is fine as is the gilt title. The paper covered cardboard slipcase shows some wear especially at its corners but has held together nicely, with some light soiling and stains on its exterior and one end of the opening starting to slightly split. Unusual condition for a finely bound book over eighty years in age. Bookseller Inventory # 002892
