From Dent series of Temple Classics for Young People.

This is the uncommon, true first, 1899 edition of Arthur Rackham’s Tales from Shakespeare – more usually seen in the revised, enlarged edition of 1909.

The publisher’s deluxe leather binding is particularly scarce; I can locate no other example currently for sale online.

Contents include:
The Tempest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Winter’s Tale, Much Ado about Nothing, As You Like It, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Merchant of Venice, Cymbeline, King Lear, Macbeth, All’s Well that Ends Well, The Taming of the Shrew, The Comedy of Errors, Measure for Measure, Twelfth Night, Timon of Athens, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Othello, and Pericles, Prince of complete and intact, with no owner inscriptions. Contents very clean and crisp, with no foxing or staining. Ribbon page marker with usual creasing and wear. Endpapers with usual slight browning/offsetting, faint trace of bookseller’s pencilled notes (erased); front free endpaper with closed and open tears (presumably from removal of bookplate: see scans); rear endpapers with small mark to upper corners; front hinge split, a little fragile. Edges of page block with a few tiny scratches; top with partial tarnishing to gilt, including two small dark patches. Binding slightly loose. Boards and spine as shown, including nicks plus a little wear to head and foot of spine, a little rubbing to extremities, usual browning to spine, short split to foot of upper joint.
