Extremely scarce and hard-to-find title! Brown leather binding with gilt lettering and illustration on the front board and spine. Gilt outer page edges. 943 historical pages! "No man of sound sense ever writes unintelligibly, and no true poet ever makes inharmonious verses. Shakespeare was both; and yet in his plays we meet with passages which are devoid of meaning, and lines without any poetic melody. The natural inference then is, that these defects are due not to him, but to transcribers and printers, and it becomes the duty of the critic to endeavour to discover and bring back the real words of the poet." ---- from the Preface.

About this Item: Philadelphia. Printed and Sold by Bioren & Madan 1795, 1795. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. The Plays and Poems of William Shakspeare. Corrected from the latest and best London edition, with notes by Samuel Johnson, L.L.D. To which are added a Glossary and the Life of the Author Embellished with a striking likeness from the collection of his Grace the Duke of Chandos. First American Edition. Philadelphia. Printed and Sold by Bioren & Madan 1795 4 volumes only of the 8 volume set. Hardcovers. Bound in full leather with maroon spine labels for the titles and black ovals for the volume numbers. These appear to be the original eighteen century American bindings. Binding are good and tight, except for volume 1 where the front hinge is cracked. Endpapers have many ownership names on them, mostly that of George Johnston. The name John Johnston appears several times as well, as doess the name Hugh. The word Shakespeare is written on the foreedges of two of the volumes. Pages are somewhat foxed. Bindings are tight and still attractive. The most famous Johnston family in American were the fur traders – John Johnston and his Native American wife raised their children with a famously fine library of classical titles, such at these. That does not, however, mean that this set belonged to him; Johnston was not an uncommon name. Volume 1. xlviii + 384 pages. This volumes contains the engraved portrait, preface the American edition, Life of Shakespeare including his will, glossary and the plays: The Tempest, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Merry Wives of Windsor, Measure for Measure, and The Comedy of Errors. There is a tattered bookplate on the inside front cover with name George Johnston written in it. The names George and John Johnston are signed on the first blank as well. On the inside front cover there is a little doodle of two characters that seems to be made from the letters in the word george. Front hinge cracked, but holding tight. Volume 4. Printed 1796. Contains King John, Richard II, Henry IV part 1, Henry IV part 2, Henry V. 447 pages. A lot of writing on the blank pages. The names Geo. Scott, Pe Johnston, John J., George Johnston’s Book bought 1801. On the final blank, Shakespeare’s name is written three times and John Falstaff’s once. Volume 5. Printed 1796. Contains all three parts of Henry VI, and Richard III. 392 pages. George Johnston’s name appears several times. Volume 6. Printed 1796. Contains King Henry VIII, Coriolanus, Julius Caesar, Antony and Cleopatra. 388 pages. George Johnston’s name appears at the front. On the back blank there are several more names, John Johnston, George Johnston, Hugh Sarrence and others. An attractive set of the first American printing of Shakespeare. Half a set anyway.

About this Item: Bioren and Madan, Philadelphia, 1795. Full-Leather. Condition: Very Good. First Thus. [8 Vols] The first American Edition of Shakespeare's works with provenance to its first owner, Nimrod H Moore of Kentucky, who bought the books in New York around 1805. Bound in contemporary sheep rebacked to style with red morocco spine labels and oval volume numbers below in keeping with the original, paper reinforcement to the inner hinges. New York bookstore label on the first pastedown with the motto 'For Sale at Burtus & Crane Lottery Office' (19 Peck-slip, New York) around a woodcut American eagle; mid-nineteenth century bookseller's price and note in ink opposite ('$15.50'). The printed book-label (with space for manuscript volume number) of 'Nimrod H Moore' appears on the first pastedown of volumes II-VI with his ownership inscription possibly dated 1805 to 'Jefferson County' [Kentucky] on the second blank of Vol II. (Moore served as a Captain of Kentucky militia in the war of 1812.) A smaller booklabel has been partly removed from the pastedown of volume VII with an ownership inscription on the title page 'No 50- Francis Cagswell 1827' and there is a wholly removed book label from the pastedown of volume VIII and the mid-nineteenth century ownership inscription with flourish: 'Sherman Everest's Yale' (Bachelor of Arts 1871). The works have been collated and are complete barring a single leaf in volume VIII (pp 245-246, Othello Act II) which has been replaced in nineteenth century pen facsimile by Everest himself who has written the missing text neatly over two leaves with two additional blanks inserted - perhaps using the Yale (now Beinecke) copy of this edition to replace the missing lines? Everest has also made good a tear with loss to Vol VIII, pp195-6 (Hamlet Act V) with a few words of pen facsimile. The paper stock has toned and browned unevenly throughout with a small paper repair to the foreedge of the first blank of Vol I; a 4mm hole in the middle of this blank and at the end of Vol I half of the first of the two final end-papers has been torn away. Field's famous engraved portrait of Shakespeare is present as called for opposite the title page. Bioren and Madan produced an edition rich in firsts as the bibliographer of Shakespeare Jaggard describes it: 'The first edition of Shakespeare produced outside the British isles and . the first to be published in America. The portrait of the poet is also the first produced in the United States.' The base text of this Philadelphia edition was William Jones' Dublin reprint of Ayscough's second edition; the glossary probably drawn from a 1792 Scottish edition. In its apparatus the publishers were reluctant to 'enter into the textual undergrowth' (Andrew Murphy), a decision glossed in the preface to Vol I as characteristically American: 'An American reader is seldom disposed to wander through the wilderness of verbal criticism. An immense tract of excellent land, uncultivated and even unexplored, presents an object more interesting to every mind than those ingenious trifles, that in Europe are able to command so much attention.' Murphy tentatively identifies the editor as the prominent Philadelphia lawyer, Joseph Hopkinson, and credits him with the decision to modernise the spelling of the text 'perhaps inspired by the reforms which had been advocated by the lexicographer Noah Webster.' Although well represented in American libraries this edition is rare in British collections: ESTC locates BL only; Copac adds York but not Oxford or Cambridge libraries and complete sets are rare in commerce.
