SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM.

 

Complete Works. (c. 1904) [Large revolving bookcase] Glasgow & NY David Bryce and Son (1904) Forty volumes. Dedicated to the actress Ellen Terry, this complete set of Shakespeare was part of a series of literary sets or individual volumes dedicated to her. Of the Ellen Terry series, Louis Bondy wrote that these volumes are "Bryce's greatest achievement as a leading promoter of miniature books," and, in particular, he describes the Shakespeare as "the most prodigious of these sets." (Bondy, p.114). Most of the sets were printed in 1904. Included are all the plays, the sonnets, a biographical sketch, and glossary. Bound in silver-gilt stamped RED (that have an armorial shield with a knight's helmet above to front cover) with silver-gilt stamped decoration and title to spines.
