Notes from Magers and Quinn

24mo. Contemporary tree calf boards with gilt dentelles and edges, contemporary marbled endpapers; at some point each volume was professionally and neatly rebacked in leather with gilt titles. Illustrated throughout, engraved plates, vignette titles. Outer corners show minor chipping; gilt edges faded on several volumes; gilt dentelles show small patches of wear on some volumes, but generally clean and visible. Internally very clean, no foxing or dust soil. A very attractive copy of one of the foremost 18th-century editions of Shakespeare's works.
