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

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: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co. for John and Josiah Boydell, George and W. Nicol., London, 1802. Rare finely bound complete set of "by far the largest single engraving enterprise ever undertaken in England", John Boydell's magnificent illustrated folio edition of the dramatic works of Shakespeare. Folio, 9 volumes. Bound in three quarters morocco with gilt titles to the spine, all edges marbled. Elaborately illustrated with 96 plates engraved by the most eminent British engravers and painters of the era including Richard Westall, Thomas Stothard, George Romney, Henry Fuseli, Benjamin West, Angelica Kauffman, Robert Smirke, James Durno, John Opie, Francesco Bartolozzi, Thomas Kirk, and Henry Thomson. Edited by George Steevens, one of the greatest Shakespearean scholars of the 18th century. In near fine condition. A rare complete set of Boydell's masterpiece, for which he spared no expense to produce. The works of William Shakespeare enjoyed a renewed popularity in 18th-century England. Several new editions of his works were published, his plays were revived in the theater and numerous works of art were created illustrating the plays and specific productions of them. Capitalizing on this interest, English publisher John Boydell undertook a large and elaborate Shakespeare venture that included the establishment of the Boydell Shakespeare Gallery and the production of a grand illustrated edition of Shakespeare's plays showcasing the talents of British painters and engravers. He chose the noted scholar and Shakespeare editor George Steevens to oversee the edition which became the focus of the enterprise. Boydell spared no expense in the production of the set. He hired typography experts William Bulmer and William Martin to develop and cut a new typeface specifically for the edition and sought out the most eminent painters and engravers of the day to contribute 96 engravings to the folios.

About this Item: London: Mess. Boydell & Co., London, Cheapside, [1803]. Large 4to (12.75 x x 16.75 inches), [7] ff., + engraved title page, frontispiece, 2 portraits and 97 plates illustrating the most-famous scenes from Shakespeare. In the de luxe binding of publisher's straight-grain red morocco gilt, gilt-extra backstrip, gilt design on both covers. Hinges repaired, rubbing at extremities. Some foxing almost exclusively confined to the margins, a bit heavier at front and rear of volume. The very rare duplicate plate by Blake for Romeo and Juliet is present and exceptionally clean. Bookplate of E.H. R. Noble of South Shields at the front. First edition, large-paper copy. As the preeminent printmaker of his time, John Boydell's publishing house employed many of the best engravers of their generation including Bartolozzi, Stothard, Schiavonetti and Blake. Although Boydell ran this large-scale printmaking and publishing house for nearly 80 years, "his most significant contribution to British art can be considered the patriotic Shakespeare Gallery project conceived in 1786. Boydell employed more than forty different engravers for the large-format and quarto versions of the gallery's prints. A number of high-profile engravers? were employed on a handful of the plates, being paid exceptionally high rates" (DNB). Seller Inventory # 122432

About this Item: Oxford University Press, London, 1947. The complete works of William Shakespeare bound by Bayntun-Riviere in an elaborate Cosway-style binding. Octavo, bound in full levant blue morocco by Bayntun Riviere in a Cosway-style binding with a hand painted miniature ivorene portrait of Shakespeare under glass to the front panel within a gilt border, gilt titles and tooling to the spine in six compartments within raised gilt bands, quadruple gilt ruling to the panels with ornamental cornerpieces, gilt turn-ins and inner dentelles, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. In near fine condition. Edited by W. J. Craig. A beautiful example. Cosway bindings (named for renowned 19th-century English miniaturist Richard Cosway) were popularized, if not invented, in the early 1900s by the renowned London bookselling firm of Henry Sotheran. The earliest Cosway bindings were created by Miss C.B. Currie who faithfully imitated Cosway's detailed watercolor style of portraiture from designs by J.H. Stonehouse, Sotheran's manager. These delicate miniature paintings, often on ivory, were set into the covers or doublures of richly-tooled bindings and protected by a thin pane of glass. Seller Inventory # 119760

About this Item: John and Josiah Boydell, London, 1803. Hardcover. Condition: Good. First Edition; First Printing. Elephant folio first edtion of Boydell's Shakespeare prints (52) . A landmark work in British engraving. In original half-leather boards and cloth, of which the leather is separating and deteriorated, and the cloth ragged and tattered (although front titles still clear) ; front board detached. The prints themselves are stunning despite dampstains affecting the upper third beginning at top corner, and a further two smaller sections at lower edge; stains fade progressively from front of book to rear; on darker prints the staining is more subtle. Paper is still bright and crisp, and largely free of foxing. Pictures on request. (There is a smaller folio edition, 17x22" of Boydell's Shakespeare, but this is the first larger elephant folio edition of 1803). ; Vol. 2; 22 x 28"; Wikipedia: The idea of a grand Shakespeare edition was conceived during a dinner at the home of Josiah Boydell (John's nephew) in late 1786. [18] Five important accounts of the occasion survive. [19] From these, a guest list and a reconstruction of the conversation have been assembled. The guest list reflects the range of Boydell's contacts in the artistic world: it included Benjamin West, painter to King George III; George Romney, a renowned portrait painter; George Nicol, bookseller to the king; William Hayley, a poet; John Hoole, a scholar and translator of Tasso and Aristotle; and Daniel Braithwaite, secretary to the postmaster general and a patron of artists such as Romney and Angelica Kauffmann. Most accounts also place the painter Paul Sandby at the gathering. [20]Boydell wanted to use the edition to help stimulate a British school of history painting. He wrote in the "Preface" to the folio that he wanted "to advance that art towards maturity, and establish an English School of Historical Painting". [21] A court document used by Josiah to collect debts from customers after Boydell's death relates the story of the dinner and Boydell's motivations: [Boydell said] he should like to wipe away the stigma that all foreign critics threw on this nation-that they had no genius for historical painting. He said he was certain from his success in encouraging engraving that Englishmen wanted nothing but proper encouragement and a proper subject to excel in historical painting. The encouragement he would endeavor to find if a proper subject were pointed out. Mr. Nicol replied that there was one great National subject concerning which there could be no second opinion, and mentioned Shakespeare. The proposition was received with acclaim by the Alderman [John Boydell] and the whole company (see fuller Wikipedia entry). Seller Inventory # 34972

About this Item: Jacob Tonson, 1714. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 12mo. Vols 2-8, lacking only vol 1. This is a made-up part set. Vols 2 & 3 are from one set, vols 4, 5 & 7 from another set, and vols 6 & 8 from a third set. The set was issued in both 8 and 9 volume editions, a ninth volume of poems being added to later sets. This is the 8 volume edition, the last book having 'End of the Eighth and Last Volume' on the final page, followed by the index. Collated complete. All books have a volume title and contents page, plus a title page and frontis for each play. Condition: worn contemporary calf, some boards loose. The books could do with rebinding. Contents are generally quite crisp and clean, much better than is usually found in early editions of Shakespeare. Vol 4 has small stains at fore-edge at end; vol 5 has small ink smudges on title, and red ink mark affecting bottom tips of about 40 pages; vol 6 has small piece torn from bottom corners of A4 and A5, not affecting text; vol 7 has light stain at head of pages throughout; vol 8 has a little light staining affecting some early pages. ***This is an extremely attractive edition of Shakespeare with woodcut head and tail pieces at the beginning and end of each play, as well as a cut to the title pages and copperplate frontispieces. It is also by some way the scarcest 18thC edition of Shakespeare's works, much scarcer than the 1709 first 8vo edition. We would be interested in purchasing a copy of vol 1. 7 vols of 8.

About this Item: Bickers and Son 1880-81, London, 1880. Leather. Condition: Fine. Various (illustrator). A fine set of the complete works of William Shakespeare. In beautiful straight grained morocco bindings by Bickers and Son, the publisher of this work. The fourth edition. Illustrated with frontispieces to the first four volumes. Collated, complete. To volume I there is the life of Shakespeare, Shakespeare's will as well as some commendatory verses and early editions. Volume X is a very useful glossary to Shakespearean language and references where they are used in the previous volumes. It was the most exhaustive glossary to exist at its time of publication. The Alexander Dyce edition of Shakespeare's works. Dyce was a Scottish dramatic editor and literary historian. He issued annotations of many of Shakespeare's contemporaries, somewhat rescuing from the neglect by eighteenth century scholars. His Shakespeare edition was originally published in 1857. Dyce's wide reading in Elizabethan literature enabled him to explain much about Shakespeare and the Elizabethan stage which was formerly obscure and unknown. He was distinguished for his judgement and erudition. All ten volumes of this collection are overflowing with useful footnotes by Dyce. In uniform straight grained morocco bindings with gilt stamping to spines. Binding signed by Bickers and Son, with stamp to verso of front endpaper. Externally, excellent with minor shelfwear to the extremities and joints. Just a few marks to front board of volumes VII and IX. Some offsetting from frontispieces to first four volumes. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright with instances of light scattered spots throughout, heavier to first and last few pages. Fine. book. Seller Inventory # SET57-H-2
