Large Paper Edition of the Shakespeare Head edition of the novels of the Brontë sisters, number 41 of 500 copies of the American issue, the whole edition having been equally divided between Great Britain and the USA, extremely scarce in the attractive publisher’s binding.

19 volumes, octavo (228 155 mm), large paper copy. Bound at the Riverside Press (so signed on front free endpapers) in contemporary green crushed half morocco, spines gilt lettered in two compartments, four compartments gilt with art nouveau style designs, raised bands, green cloth sides, single gilt rules, pale green endpapers, top edges gilt. 30 etched illustrations, 11 as frontispieces, the frontispieces also duplicated in full colour, with printed tissue guards. Title pages in red and black. Occasional mild spotting to pages, spines evenly faded to brown but still very eye appealing, light general shelf wear to bindings, mild soiling to some sides, a very good set which displays nicely.
