About this Item: Shakespeare Head Press, Stratford-on-Avon, 1906. Ten quarto volumes. This is one of only twelve sets 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, this Shakespeare set is very difficult to obtain. Volumes I and II are lacking the silk fore-edge ties, spine lettering a trifle rubbed on volume VI, few volumes with minor wrinkling to spine ends, else a fine copy in creamy full limp vellum stamped in gilt. (Tomkinson p. 229, Ransom p. 9). Seller Inventory # 23261

Each volume contains four plays, with the exception of volume ten which contains two plays followed by Shakespeare's narrative poems and sonnets. In near fine condition. Exceptionally rare and desirable. A stunning set. English poet, playwright, and actor, William Shakespeare is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. His extant works consist of approximately 38 plays and 154 sonnets. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright to this day. Shakespeare's early plays were primarily comedies and histories and are regarded as some of the best work ever produced in these genres. He then wrote mainly tragedies including Hamlet, Othello, and Macbeth; and in his late phase wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances. Seller Inventory # 95176

About this Item: Cambridge and London: Macmillan and Co., 1863. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Cambridge and London: Macmillan and Co., 1863-1866. A Finely Bound Set of Shakespeare SHAKESPEARE, William. William Aldis WRIGHT (editor). The Cambridge Shakespeare published in nine volumes. This is the First Edition of the set which went on to be published many times. Vol.1 edited by William George Clark and John Glover; vols 2-9 edited by William George Clark and William Aldis Wright. Nine octavo volumes (approximately 9 x 6 inches; 225 x 155 mm external dimensions). Handsomely bound by W Pratt of London (stamp to the reverse of the front free end paper) full polished calf ruled in gilt, with red and green title labels, decorated in gilt, with inner gilt dentelles and gilt edges to the boards. Spines panelled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. A fine set. William Aldis Wright (1831 - 1914), was an English writer and editor. The Works of William Shakespeare (1863-6), edited by William George Clark, with at first John Glover and later William Aldis Wright as collaborators, was published in nine volumes by Macmillan, but printed at the University Press, so that it became known as the Cambridge Shakespeare. This important edition was based on a thorough collation of the four Folios and of all the Quarto editions of the separate plays, and of subsequent editions and commentaries (preface), so that in textual matters it constitutes a virtual variorum. Prefaces provide accounts of the early textual history of each of the works, and the volumes include the texts of first quartos of Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet, as well as the quartos relating to Henry V, The First Part of the Contention (2 Henry VI), and Richard Duke of York (3 Henry VI). Clark and Wright used the Cambridge edition as the basis for the influential one-volume Globe Shakespeare. Both the Cambridge and the Globe editions were revised in 1891 (The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare). Condition Report Externally Spine good condition gilt titles to spine with some wear and marks to the raised bands and in some compartments.

The Volumes are in Very Good Condition bound in blind-ruled speckled calf, with the spines divided into six gilt-stamped compartments b five gilt and raised bands, with a red morocco letter-piece in the second compartment from the top, with gilt tooled board edges and red speckled leaf edges. Externally the board and spines are lightly scuffed in general, with repairs to all hinges, and to the heads and tails of several spines, confinening the majority of scuffing to the board edges and corners, which are bumped a bit. Internally the leaves are generally clean and amply margined, with mild toing and light to moderate toning throughout all volumes, with some small wormholes in the lower margin of volume V, with some looser leaves, light damp-staining on occasion, as well as some marginal tears, occasionally affecting the text. The Volumes are Predominantly Complete With the portrait from Nicholas Rowe's 1733 edition, rather than that issued originally. The volumes are paginated as follows: Vol. I; [vii]-lxiv-[lxxxii], [ii], [3]-456.: Vol. II; [ii], [3]-479.: Vol. III; [ii], [3]-478.: Vol. IV; [ii], [3]-526.: Vol. V; [ii], [3]-453, [1].: Vol. VI; [ii], [3]-560.: Vol. VII; [ii], [3]-488.: Vol. VIII; [ii], [5]-405, [lvii]. The volumes collate as follows: Vol. I; A, a8, b9, c-d8, e2, B-2F8, 2G4: Vol. II; [x]1, B-T8, *4, U-2H8: Vol. III; [x]1, B-2H8: Vol. IV; [x]1, B-2L8: Vol. V; [x]1, B-2F8, 2G4: Vol. VI; [x]1, B-2N8: Vol. VII; [x]1, B-2H8, 2I4: Vol. VIII; [x]i, B-2G8. William Warburton was an English writer, literary critic and churchman, Bishop of Gloucester from 1759 until his death. He edited editions of the works of his friend Alexander Pope, and of William Shakespeare. Either in quest of paradox, or unable to recognise the real tendencies of Alexander Pope's Essay on Man, Warburton defended it against the Examen of Jean Pierre de Crousaz through a series of articles he contributed to The Works of the Learned in 1738 9. Whether Pope had really understood the tendency of his own work has always been doubtful, but there is no question that he was glad of an apologist, and that in the long run Warburton's jeu d'esprit helped Pope more than all his erudition. This led to a sincere friendship between the two men, with Pope fostering Warburton as a literary collaborator and editor. As part of this effort, in a 1743 edition of the Dunciad published under Warburton's editorship, Pope persuaded Warburton to add a fourth book, and encouraged the substitution of Colley Cibber for Theobald as the "hero" of the poem . On his death in 1744, Pope's will bequeathed half of his library to Warburton, as well as the copyright to all his printed works. Warburton would subsequently publish a full edition of Pope's writings in 1751. In 1747 his edition of Shakespeare was published, incorporating material from Pope's earlier edition. He had previously entrusted notes and emendations on Shakespeare to Sir Thomas Hanmer, whose unauthorised use of them led to a heated controversy. He also accused Lewis Theobald, with whom he had corresponded with on Shakespearean subjects as early as 1727, of stealing his ideas, and denied his critical ability. Each volume measures about 20.5 cm. by 13 cm. By 3.5 cm. Each leaf measures about 195 mm. by 120 mm.More Images and/or Binding Spin Available. Seller Inventory # ABE-1539698793926
