The Library of Shakespeare Millennium Edition 1999

If you ever wanted a very large reference on Shakespeare in your library, this would be it. Copyright 1999. Published by Trident Press. Millennium Edition. A reprint from a 19thcentury 3 volume manuscript complete with original illustrations. Comes with a mylar jacket that has some creases and the remnant of a sticker price on back, though I have photographed the book without the cover. The cover has served well, because the black cloth and gold gilded titles are excellent. Extremities and edges show bumps and minimal wear. Head of spine shows a crease (front upper head of spine shows a bump which transfers into the pages throughout the first third of book). No personal inscriptions. Hinges and binding are intact. Pages are bumped throughout most of book on upper corners. Pages are not toned and text appears clean. If you are a student of Shakespeare and want a book to underline and highlight, this is the book. This book contains his Comedies, Tragedies, Histories and Sonnets. An absolutely huge book at approx. 12.5” x 9.5” x 2.75” and weighing close to 9 lbs. 
Price includes shipping. If local pickup, subtract $4.00.
