The Works.Edinburgh & London: by T. and A. Constable, for Grant Richards, 1901-04 Stock Code: 146105
The Edinburgh Folio, limited edition of 1,000 copies, with eight volumes additionally signed by the publisher, though uncalled for in the limitation. Well-margined and finely printed in large type, the publication aims "to present our Shakespeare in stately yet convenient form" (advertisement).
10 volumes, folio. Original white cloth-backed orange cloth, orange morocco label to spines lettered in gilt, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed.
Each volume with a portrait frontispiece of Shakespeare or his contemporaries, with tissue guards. Volume 1 tissue guard printed with Ben Jonson's "To the Reader".
Spines very slightly darkened, a few trivial marks to covers, occasional foxing to edges, internally clean and fresh. A very attractive set.
