Item Description: London for H. Herringman, E. Brewster, and R. Bentley 1685, 1685. The fourth folio edition of Shakespeare's plays, the title-page is in first state, without Chiswell’s name in the imprint. Portrait frontispiece after Martin Droeshout with ten line poem by Ben Johnson entitled ‘to the reader’ beneath. Woodcut printer’s device on titlepage (McKerrow 263) and decorative woodcut initials. Large folio (347x225mm), bound in very handsome 19th century full brown paneled morocco, the think boards paneled in double-ruled blind and with blind stamped corner pieces, the spine with tall raised bands ruled in blind, the compartments each with a central gilt leaf device, one compartment gilt lettered, turn-ins beautifully gilt tooled, endpapers marbled, a.e.g. [12], 272, [2], 328, 303, [1]. A wonderful copy, in all very fresh and handsomely presented, the binding with only the most minor evidence of age, very minor scattered light foxing or staining, seven leaves supplied from a slightly shorter copy (D1, 2G3 & 4, 3E4 & 5, 4B5 & 6), closed 2 inch tear to M1 neatly repaired, top corner of XX6 and outside edge of S4 with minor restoration. RARE AND IMPORTANT SHAKESPEARE FOLIO, the beautiful FOURTH folio printing of Shakespeare’s plays. Considered the stateliest and most handsome of the four folios, it was printed on Royal stock larger then the third folio which was in turn larger then the first and second. It also employed a new larger type and wider spacing. The Fourth was the first folio edition to be printed including the seven spurious plays, although folio sets of the seven plays had been printed for insertion in the second issue of the third folio. It was the last edition printed in the 17th century and the last printed before the editorial endeavors of the 18th. It is especially desirable and rare in a contemporary binding with fine gilt work. A Shakespeare folio is one of the most desirable books to a collector of literature. Shakespeare is far more then England’s most famous playwrite. His effect on vernacular English is only matched by that of Geoffrey Chaucer. Our modern way speaking, and therefore thinking, has been more heavily influenced by Shakespeare then most of us may realize. From the way we sign our Valentine’s cards to the way we insult our enemies, Shakespeare is everywhere. The first folio is now considered impossible for the private collector as virtually all copies are now in institutions. The third has been considered rare for centuries as the majority of copies printed were destroyed in the fire of London. The opportunity to purchase any of the folio editions in fully contemporary bindings, especially ones with such as small degree of later sophistication, is a very scarce occurrence.

Item Description: London: by Tho. Cotes, for Robert Allot, 1632, 1632. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. A handsome and COMPLETE copy of the SECOND FOLIO, FIRST ISSUE, FIRST STATE OF THE IMPRINT [Todd 1a]. This is the second edition of Shakespeare’s collected plays, “incomparably the greatest work in the English language” (Jackson, Pforzheimer Catalogue). The Second Folio includes John Milton’s “An Epitaph on the admirable Dramaticke Poet, W. Shakespeare,” the author’s first appearance in print. There are five variants of the first issue, three substituting the names and addresses of other publishers for Allot’s. “These publishers were all proprietors of one or more of the copyrights of Shakespeare’s plays,” observes Jackson, “but their interests were much less than Allot’s and consequently the proportion of copies issued with their names in the imprint was much smaller.” All the variants have the same colophon: “Printed at London by Thomas Cotes, for John Smethwick, William Aspley, Richard Hawkins, Richard Meighen, and Robert Allot, 1632.” Folio. Title with engraved portrait by Martin Droeshout. “To the Reader” inlaid with some pen-and-ink facsimile, title restored and laid down, four preliminaries following the title rehinged, final leaf laid down. Occasional staining, some repairs, several leaves washed, some margins shaved close to rule. Finely bound in crimson morocco gilt, a.e.g., by Riviere. Half morocco case. Provenance: Sotheby’s, June 5, 1944, to William Foyle for £230; The Library of William Foyle, Christie’s 11-13 July 2000, lot 454. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-3512653230195369248

Item Description: London: for H. Herringman, E. Brewster, and R. Bentley, 1685, 1685. Folio (356 × 230 mm). Nineteenth-century burgundy crushed morocco by Maltby of Oxford, spine richly gilt in compartments, sides ruled in gilt and with gilt cornerpieces, gilt decorative roll to turn-ins, marbled endpapers (spine sunned, sides with a few superficial scuffs). Housed in a flat back cloth solander box. Armorial bookplate of the English physician Paulin Martin (1842-1929), Abingdon (with manuscript date added 5 August 1883, removing the book to his Welsh house); recent leather booklabel of Lucy [Doheny] Smith Battson, daughter-in-law of the noted book collector Estelle Doheny (1875-1958). First leaf (portrait and To the Reader verses) trimmed down around the engraved and printed areas and skilfully mounted, with partial loss of first letter of the engraver's name only; misprinted headline on 1B4 recto (The Tempest) corrected in early manuscript; small hole in 1C5 affecting 4 letters on recto only but not the sense; a few minor repairs to closed tears without loss; occasional minor spots, stains or spill-burns; some pencilled marginal marks; these flaws generally minor only, a very good copy. Engraved portrait by Martin Droeshout above the verses To the Reader on verso of the first leaf, title with fleur-de-lis device (McKerrow 263), double column text within typographical rules, woodcut initials. Fourth folio, and the last of the 17th-century editions of Shakespeare's works, edited by John Heminge (d. 1630) and Henry Condell (d. 1627), the seven plays added by Philip Chetwin (d. 1680), publisher of the Third Folio. A reprint of the ill-fated Third Folio, this edition was issued by Henry Herringman in conjunction with other booksellers, and has three settings of the title-page. Of the seven additional plays, also included in the Third Folio, only Pericles is today recognised as the work of Shakespeare. In common with the Third, the Fourth Folio dropped the final "e" from Shakespeare's name, a spelling that persisted until the beginning of the 19th century. The printer of the Comedies has been identified from the ornaments as Robert Roberts. Although this is the only edition in which each play does not start on a fresh page, it is in a larger fount and more liberally spaced than the three earlier editions. (The two pages of L1 are set in smaller type, presumably after the discovery that some text had been omitted.) The Fourth Folio remained the favoured edition among collectors until the mid-18th century, when Samuel Johnson and Edward Capell argued for the primacy of the First Folio text.

Item Description: Printed for H. Herringman, and are to be sold by Joseph Knight and Francis Saunders, London, 1685. First edition of the Fourth Folio of Shakespeare. Bound in full brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine. The fourth folio is the final and most magnificent of the four 17th-century folio editions of Shakespeare's plays. The Fourth Folio "contains the additional seven plays that first appeared in the 1663 edition [including the authentic Pericles, Prince of Tyre], as well as a good deal of correction and modernization of the text designed to make it easier to read and understand" (Folger's Choice). Old paper repair to verso of title-page, several other very minor paper repairs. Some browning and minimal staining, a very good example. As in some other copies, as Greg notes, number of errors in signatures have been corrected in manuscript, presumably at the time of publication. Although there is no accurate census of the number of folios still extant today, it is believed that copies of each printing number only in the hundreds. The rarest form of the fourth folio. This is the rare Knight and Saunders issue, with their names on the title-page. W. W. Greg observes, "Since the title is entirely reset it is presumably a cancel printed after the volume was complete and perhaps republished, and designed for those copies that Herringman chose to issue through his own booksellers" (Greg III, 1121). In 1684, Herringman turned over the retail side of his business to Francis Saunders and his partner Joseph Knight. Fourth Folios almost invariably bear the imprints "Herringman-Brewster-Bentley" or "Herringman-Brewster-Chiswell-Bentley." The Shakespeare Folios "have an aura of book magic about them. For a bibliophile it is a volume devoutly to be wished for and rarely attained; to a library it is a crowning jewel of a collection Shakespeare, indeed, is a name to conjure with. No lengthy explanation as a good deal of corres are needed; he is simply the most distinguished author in the English language" (Legacies of Genius, 36). Bookseller Inventory # 5605

Item Description: Printed by Andrew Clark, for J. Martyn, and H. Herringman, London, 1676. First Davenant edition, Greg's first issue with 4-line imprint, and sixth 4to edition. [iv], 88 pp.; [A]^2 B-M^4. 1 vols. 4to. The Davenant Edition of Hamlet. The first edition of Sir William Davenant's edition of Hamlet. Davenant (1606-1668) - poet, playwright and theater manager - was "the man mainly responsible for the return of Shakespeare's plays to the London stage at the Restoration" (ODNB). His father John Davenant was a devotee of Shakespeare, and the playwright purportedly stood as Davenant's godfather at his baptism. The first performance in 1661 of Davenant's edited version of Hamlet - with lines cut and supposed obscure language clarified and adapted to contemporary tastes - starred the great Shakespearean actors Thomas Betterton in the title role and Mary Saunderson as Ophelia (Davenant pioneered the use of female actors in female roles). Betterton could trace his performance back to Shakespeare, as Davenant instructed his actor to model his performance on Taylor of the Blackfriars, who was instructed by Shakespeare himself. Pepys was in the audience for the opening and remarked in his Diary for 24 August 1661 "? and then straight to the Opera, and there saw 'Hamlet, Prince of Denmark,' done with scenes very well, but above all, Betterton did the prince's part beyond imagination." The "Opera" is Duke's Playhouse, Lincoln's Inn Fields, established by Davenant in 1661 and featuring the first use of moveable scenery and a proscenium arch.Davenant's edition is the sixth 4to edition of Hamlet overall and one of the only early editions still obtainable on the market. Bartlett 84; Greg I, 197(i); Wing S-2950; ESTC R17530 Full brown calf in period style, covers ruled in gilt to a panel design with gilt-stamped tulips at outer corners of center panel, spine in six compartments with raised bands, red morocco spine label in one, the rest tooled in gilt with small floral device. Repair to lower outer corner of [A]1, small paper repairs to worming at gutter of B1-E2, two early marginal notes on M3r [iv], 88 pp.; [A]^2 B-M^4. 1 vols. 4to First Davenant edition, Greg's first issue with 4-line imprint, and sixth 4to edition.

Item Description: Shakespeare Head Press, Stratford-on-Avon, 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 ru bbed on volume VI, else a fine copy in creamy full limp vellum stamped in gilt. (Tomkinson p. 229, Ransom p. 9).

Item Description: Cranach Press, Weimar, 1930. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good +. Edward Gordon Craig; Eric Gill (illustrator). First edition. Weimar: Cranach Press, 1930. The Red Count's Hamlet.Count Harry Kessler's very own copy of the Cranach Hamlet, bound in full red-brick levant morocco leather by Otto Dorfner, signed binding. This is by far the best binding of the book, one of perhaps three dozen bound thus (Brinks 140) The colophon in this copy, printed in red, states simply: "This copy is not for sale It was printed for Count Harry Kessler" For this copy, Count Kessler had Dorfner additionally bind in (at the rear) the two full page advertisements for the English edition, both on the same Malliol-Kessler paper. J Dover Wilson's "Notes on The Tragedie of Hamlet," is inserted (as usual) into a sliding compartment attach to the inside back board. The interior of the book is in excellent condition: there is some bottom edge foxing on the following pages 76-81 (three leaves) and 124-127 (two leaves), not affecting the text or images. The book was printed damp, and these leaves may have had a little extra moisture. In any event, this is not a storage defect. Binding is sound. Conservator Stuart Brockman has expertly inserted thin vellum tabs under the leather spine, reducing pressure on the boards, allowing the book to opened safely. The front board gutter has also been lightly refurbished (previously dry and a little flakey). The book is housed in a matching red-brick quarter morocco clamshell, also by Brockman, with his binder's tag. This copy was likely with Kessler in Lyon when he died as it came to its previous owner through a binder in Lyon. This is the first appearance of the book in trade and an unqualified high-spot of fine printing. Bookseller Inventory # 3331

Item Description: 1802. First Edition. SHAKESPEARE, William. The Dramatic Works of Shakspeare. Revised by George Steevens. London: W. Bulmer and Company for John and Josiah Boydell, and George Nichol, 1802. Nine volumes. Large thick folio (each volume measures approximately 13-1/2 by 17 by 2-1/2 inches), 19th-century full plum straight-grain morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines and covers, all edges gilt. $17,500.The monumental 1802 Boydell-Steevens edition of Shakespeare's Works, complete with two engraved frontispieces and the full complement of 94 fine full-page copper engravings after paintings by the leading English artists of the time. Edited by Boydell and revised by renowned 18th-century Shakespearean scholar George Steevens. Sumptuously bound in full 19th-century morocco-gilt."Boydell's gallery completely altered the course of English painting. Most painters earned their livings by painting portraits for the wealthy nobility, but when Boydell began to commission works from the best artists in England, they were free to explore other topics and themes, drawn first from Shakespeare's plays, then from other writers, and finally from the classics and English history. Boydell had almost single-handedly created a market for what was called 'history painting,' and painters had a source of income that was not rooted primarily in portraiture" (Friedman, 2). Contributors include Reynolds, Fuseli, Smirke, Northcote, Porter, Stothard, Hamilton, Bunbury, Opie and Westall. These images were "used repeatedly to illustrate the works of Shakespeare, and they appear in all sorts of modified, adapted, and borrowed forms in engravings and drawings that accompany the plays. Producers, directors and critics were all part of that public exposed to the Boydell prints" (Rusche). According to Boydell's prospectus of 1786, a type foundry, an ink factory, and a printing house were all specially erected for the production of this edition. He began issuing the work in 1791 in 18 eventual parts, then published a nine-volume folio edition in 1802 (this set), and finally a two-volume elephant folio of all the engravings in 1803. "There can be no doubt that Boydell's Shakespeare". was the most splendid of bibliophile editions undertaken in the 18th-century or at any other time". no Printing Press, which has hitherto existed, ever produced a work". so uniformly beautiful" (Franklin, 47-48). "During the last decade or two, [circa 1890-1910] complete surviving sets have greatly decreased in number"." (Jaggard, 506, 508). This set with 1802 general title page for each volume, all half titles, and a complete complement of 96 folio plates, with the second frontispiece bust of Shakespeare not included in the Directions to the Binder bound in at rear of Volume IX, which calls for 95 plates. Includes the important prefaces of Pope and Johnson. Armorial bookplate of Walter Charles James, 1st Baron Northbourne (1816-93), who served in Parliament.Marginal closed tear to pages 33-36 and one plate of Twelfth Night in Volume IV, not affecting letterpress or image. Occasional faint spots of foxing""far less than often found""several endpapers creased, a few minor rubs with some color restoration only to lovely morocco-gilt bindings. A splendidly bound, quite clean and wide-margined set of this beautifully illustrated work. Bookseller Inventory # 106986

Item Description: Isaac Jaggard, Edward Blount and others, London, 1623. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. San Francisco: printed by the Grabhorn Press for David Magee, 1935. Folio (370 x 247 mm). [30] pp. With an original leaf from each of the four folios tipped in; and facsimiles of the titles of the four folios. The original leaves contained are: First Folio: Henry the Eighth, pp. 229-230; Second Folio: Henry the Eighth, pp. 213-214; Third Folio: Richard the Third, pp 203-204; Fourth Folio: Richard the Third, pp. 195-196. Red morocco and marbled paper over boards, spine lettered in gilt. One of 65 copies (this one unnumbered) issued on Whatman paper. The text bright and clean, the original folio leaves little browned with light occasional spotting. Provenance: Amercian actor Charlton Heston* (1923-2008). A fine copy with excellent leaves of one of the most desirable leaf books. * Charlton Heston played Shakespeare's tragedies and historical dramas on stage and in movies on several occasions. He teamed up with David Bradley in the late 1940s to produce the first sound version of William Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar", in which he played Mark Antony. In 1948, Heston was offered a supporting role in a Broadway revival of "Antony and Cleopatra", starring Katharine Cornell. Later in 1972, he directed the movie "Antony and Cleopatra" where he played Mark Antony again. His most frequent stage roles included the title role in Macbeth. Regarding the original leaves of the historic plays "Richard III" and "Henry VIII" from Shakespeare's Folios contained in this copy, it must be mentioned that Heston played Sir Thomas More in "A Man for All Seasons" in several regional productions in the 1970s and 1980s. He regarded "A Man for All Seasons" as the best play of the 20th century and called it the most rewarding experience - apart from Shakespeare - that he'd ever had on the stage (Charlton Heston, Actor's Life, p. 230).

Although he had been writing poetry since the age of 12, his first major contribution to the literary world is considered to be An Essay on Criticism, which was published in 1711 when he was 23. This was followed by The Rape of the Lock (1712, revised 1714), his most popular poem; Eloisa to Abelard and Elegy to the Memory of an Unfortunate Lady (1717); and several shorter works, of which perhaps the best are the epistles to Martha Blount. From 1715 to 1720, he worked on a translation of Homer's Iliad. Encouraged by the very favourable reception of this translation, Pope translated the Odyssey (1725-1726) with William Broome and Elijah Fenton. In this period Pope also brought out an edition of Shakespeare, which silently "regularised" his metre and rewrote his verse in several places. From Pope?s preface: ?If ever any author deserved the name of an original, it was Shakespear?The poetry of Shakespear was inspiration indeed: he is not so much an imitator, as an instrument, of nature; and tis not to so just to say that he speaks from her, as that she speaks thro? him?, Size : 4to, With frontispiece portrait of Shakespeare (engraved by G. Vertue), volume one title page in red and black inks. Elaborate engraved headpieces, tailpieces and initials throughout., Volume : Six volumes., References : Bateson II 300; Jaggard 498, P.

Item Description: London: Printed by W.Bulmer & Co.For John And Josiah Boydell, George and W.Nicoll From The Types of W.Martin, 1802., 1802. 9 Volumes. large folio. with half-titles. 95 engraved plates (of 100?; incl. 2 portraits, 1 bound as a frontis.). contemporary blind & gilt-stamped straight-grained dark blue morocco, gilt backs, all edges gilt (rubbed, some surface abrasions to covers & spines, scattered foxing & browning). bookplate of William Kemmis. First Edition, Second Issue, of the 'Boydell Shakespeare'; our copy has 95 engraved plates whereas Jaggard calls for 100 (the NUC cites a frontis. & 96 plates). Boydell’s ‘Shakespeare’ combined the work of the best painters and engravers working in England at the time, among them Reynolds, Stothard, Hamilton, Smirke, Romney, Fuseli, Opie, Hamilton, Northcote, Neagle, Wheatley, West, Westall, and Schiavonetti. This work was " the first great effort of the kind ever made by English artists, and its influence cannot be overestimated." (DNB) According to Jaggard the production of these "sumptuous" plates "swallowed up a fortune." "The original paintings filled the great Shakespeare Gallery in Pall Mall, and made the name of Boydell famous." (Idem.) "This work was meant to be a magnificent national edition, in which splendour of production was to go hand in hand with correctness of text. "With regard to the Typographical part of the work," Nicol says, "the state of printing in England, when it was first undertaken [1786], was such that it was found necessary to establish a printing-house on purpose to print the work; a foundry to cast the types; and even a manufactory to make the ink." (Updike) Jaggard p. 508. Updike, Printing Types, II p. 144. Bookseller Inventory # elala3796

Item Description: J. & R. Tonson, London, 1765. First variorum edition of Shakespeare "and the foundation of hundreds of subsequent issues" (Jaggard); first Johnson edition, without the names of Longman and Corbet in the imprint, and with Johnson's Preface unpaginated; 8 volumes, 8vo, engraved portrait frontispiece of the bard in vol. 1 by George Virtue (after Droeshout, according to Fleeman; after Chandos according to Jaggard and Courtney & Smith), full contemporary calf neatly rebacked, black morocco labels on spines; very good. "By the time the edition appeared in 1765 Johnson had been working on it, on and off, for twenty years . His most important preliminary work was the Dictionary. In the late 1740s Johnson read the complete works of Shakespeare in Warburton's 1747 edition, and marked out over 20,000 words, the meanings of which he found well illustrated in their Shakespearean contexts. Johnson says in the Preface to the Dictionary that he took 'the diction of common life' from Shakespeare; by arranging it and defining it, Johnson gave us, according to Bertrant Bronson, 'a diffused and unheralded [but] major work of Shakespearean scholarship'. The edition of Shakespeare is not merely a spin-off from the Dictionary, but it belongs to the same series of projects on the history of learning - some completed and some only planned - that runs throughout Johnson's life from the proposed edition of Poliziano and the translation of Paolo Sarpi, through the Harleian Catalogue and the Dictionary, to Shakespeare and the Lives of the Poets" (DeMaria, pp. 218-19). This edition includes the first printing of Shakespeare's will. Chapman & Hazen, pp. 146-7; Courtney & Smith, pp. 103-4; Fleeman 65.10SP/1; Jaggard, p. 501; Pforzheimer 911g.

Item Description: Printed at the Theatre, Oxford, 1744. First edition. The scarce Hanmer set of Shakespeare's works. Quarto (pages 295 x 223), bound in full contemporary speckled calf with red morocco spine labels and the page blocks sprayed red. Unrepaired bindings holding firm although many boards show signs of splitting up the joints or minor loss at the extremities. Two of the bindings appear a bit charred. Internal contents are in excellent condition with wide margins and complete with all three portraits of the author and 36 plates (one preceding each play). With prefaces by Hanmer and Pope, a biographical sketch of the author by Rowe and Ben Jonson's elegy for Shakespeare. In all a very pleasing set and one that begs the question, why buy a later edition when you can have the original?"Shakespeare holds, by general acclamation, the foremost place in the world's literature, and his overwhelming greatness renders it difficult to criticise or even to praise him." (Long, "English Literature") Goethe expressed a common literary sentiment in stating: "I do not remember that any book or person or event in my life ever made so great an impression upon me as the plays of Shakespeare.".
