Publisher's full blue cloth, gilt lettering on spine, gilt medallion on front cover. The text is in the very clear and readable Plantin type and is that prepared for the Shakespeare Head Press by the distinguished Elizabethan scholar, Arthur Henry Bullen. A unique feature of the edition is the printing of the plays in the chronological order of their completion, not in the typically found categorization of the "Histories, Comedies and Tragedies". The arrangement was made to allow the reader to approach the body of work as a growing organism revealing the evolution of the Shakespeare s personality and genius. Appended to this edition is a 16 page sketch of Shakespeare s life and synopsis of the plays and poems reprinted from the Oxford Companion to English Literature edited by Sir Paul Harvey. Boards are lightly stained, spine sunned, gilt medallion lightly rubbed, front hinge sprung, else near fine. GOOD. . Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall. x, (ii), 1263, 16 pp. Seller Inventory # 25561
