The Poems of William Shakespeare; Edited with a memoir by Robert Bell

Charles Griffin and Co., 1856. First Thus. Cloth. Some of the pages are uncut, which is a real treat to find in this edition. Covers have stains and corners are bent. Cloth is coming away at spine, though spine itself is well-sewn and sound. Where the cloth has come away, one can peek underneath and see that the publisher bound this using recycled paper from another book, China and Its Resources, the title page of which is perfectly readable under the spine flap. Also included with this sale are a pair of spooky curiosities we found tucked inside the book: a photograph of a baby from 1920 with the caption "fun doll baby;" and an announcement card for Mrs. Albert Joseph Allen, with the fairly ominous handwritten note "A man come back." The inside front cover bears a tiny yellow sticker for A. Ferguson Bookseller in Liverpool. Fair. Item #121

Price: $65.00
