THE SONGS AND SONNETS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

First edition, first printing. Publisher's original blue cloth with gilt titles and illustration to the upper board and spine. Twelve tipped-in colour illustrations with tissue guards, with two-tone illustrations and decorations throughout, each page opening with an illuminated initial letter. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm with a little rubbing at the extremeties, the cloth and gilt fresh and bright. The contents with some light spotting to the text pages in places are otherwise clean throughout. All plates are present and in fine condition, a few tissue guards with some historic creasing. An attractive example.

A collection containing songs from the the plays along with most of the sonnets, generously illustrated throughout by Charles Robinson (1870-1937).
