London (1844-49): The Shakespeare Society. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. Item #07831
Octavo, 4 volumes in the original brown blind stamped cloth, spine printed in gilt. The four volumes of the Shakespeare Society's occasional papers ("being contributions too short in themselves for separate publication"). A scarce and fascinating compendium of articles about Shakespeare and his contemporaries. A very good set, with light wear at spine ends; bookplate of Shakespeare enthusiast Jerry D. Melton.
