First edition thus, NF. Bonded leather with gilt lettering on front panels and spines. There seems to be a binder's error to front panel of vol. 2, which finds three small indents (from a tooling instrument?), else the set would be deemed fine.

Illustrated with new and finely executed steel engravings chiefly portraits in character of celebrated American actors, drawn from life, expressly for this edition. It seems reasonable that this a facsimile edition of a 19th century set. Double-columned text in the plays and poems and the 46 page introduction. Title and page count: Vol. 1 - Comedies (621); Vol.2 - Histories (476); Vol. 3 - Tragedies and Poetical Works (628). Oversize, extra postage because of the weight. Handsome set.
