A handsome Regency-era Shakespeare, in a superior contemporary binding, the text following the edition of George Steevens and Samuel Johnson, first published in 1780.

3 volumes in one, duodecimo in sixes (160 100 mm). Contemporary straight-grain dark blue full morocco, gilt-tooled flat bands to spine forming compartments, titles direct to second within multiple rules gilt, covers and remaining compartments with multiple fillet rules, central lyre devices and vine-leaf cornerpieces gilt, all edges gilt, pink endpapers. 3 engraved title-pages by E. Finden after H. Corbould. Bound without the printed title-page to vol. 3. Very light scuff to rear cover, the faintest of spotting to vignette title-pages, faint bleeding to p. 400 from the rear endpapers, an excellent copy.
