All volumes dated 1770 with the exception of the first volume dated 1771 (the final numeral on that page has been scratched off, making it appear as 1770.) 6 vol. 12.75" x 9". viii, vii-xxxix, [11], 514, [14]; 600, [18]; 563, [25]; 507, [19]; 552, [20]; 547, [61] pp. + engraved portrait frontis and 38 plates. Period diced calf, boards ruled in gilt, spines lettered and decorated in gilt, marbled page ends, all hinges cracked and four boards detached, some scuffs with loss to corners and spine ends. Very few occasions of light and small marginal water-stains and some very light foxing in a few places, some plates lightly toned, overall a rather clean and bright copy. ************************************** The highly regarded second edition of Hanmer's illustrated Works of Shakespear. "This reprint of Hanmer on excellent paper [is] perhaps the best-produced Shakespeare edition of the 18th century ... artistically the most delightful edition of Shakespeare" (Franklin Shakespeare Domesticated p 31). Engraved heraldic bookplate to pastedowns, "Virtus Mille Scuta." [Weight 42 lbs]
