SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM,
The Plays
0. 1825. in Nine Volumes. EIGHT volumes only [of nine], London, William Pickering, Chancery Lane, 1825; approx. 3.1 ins x 1.7 ins; each volume c. 300 pp. with 33 copper-engraved plates, and a few wood-engraved circular vignettes; contemporary maroon morocco, spines panelled in gilt with raised bands, lettered in gilt with the titles of the plays within one of the panels. triple gilt rule to boards, all edges gilt; several plates slightly or marginally embrowned, a few more than the others, text clean; Volume I lacks general title (discarded by the binder); Volume III lacks the final leaf (the last two pages of "A Winter's Tale"), title-page of Vol.IX long ago mended with neat stitching; bindings a little rubbed at extremities, a little darkened, bottom corner of rear board of Volume III scratched; generally very attractive in its miniature morocco binding, though a little used, and internally clean, but missing Volume II as well as the one leaf of Volume III. Spielman 456. "The illustrated edition of the Pickering Shakespeare is rare in itself as only a small number of the sets was issued with the engraved frontispieces". He quotes Sheringham, writing in "The Connoisseur" [Nov. 1902]: "The plates of the Shakespeare in particular, 38 in number, were all lost, and the later copies of course are without them." The plates were engraved after Thomas Stothard - except for that of Puck, which is after Sir Joshua Reynolds' already celebrated painting.Since there are usually four plates in each of our volumes, we guess that our Volume IX, with only three plates, may be short of one plate.
