Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1926. In eleven volumes, complete. First American edition of this Shakespeare Head Press production; its equivalent was published in Oxford in 1925-26 (NCBEL v.2, 962) by Basil Blackwell. One of 500 numbered copies, the "Large Paper Edition", this number 42. Publisher's signed binding (The Riverside Press), 3/4 green morocco, lettered and decorated in gilt, and green cloth boards, green coated endpapers, top edges gilt, others uncut. Inserted illustrations after George Cruikshank. The leather virtually unworn, the cloth sometimes soiled; strangely, all the binder's leaves seem to be damp-stained along the margins except the green endpapers - as though this occurred before the sheets were bound. Light to moderate foxing to a large minority of the leaves. A Very Good copy.
