THE WORKS OF SHAKESPEARE

Edited by Theobald

in Seven Volumes

London 1733

First edition of Theobald's Shakespeare. Absolutely complete with title pages, frontis to volume one and half titles to volumes II to VII. Original calf boards, rebacked and recornered at a slightly later date. Bookplates of earlier owners.

Lewis Theobald was dissatisfied with Pope's edition and produced a new edition that was notable for its attention to early printings, and for its detailed and authoritative notes. He is known as the editor who made the most inspired emendations to the text.  A wonderful opportunity to obtain a first edition of one of the most important early editions of Shakespeare. The cheapest complete set on the retail market is priced at over 6500 dollars, only two sets available (the other available set priced over 10000 dollars). Postage 9 dollars within USA, postage overseas charged at cost. Insurance optional but strongly recommended. Bidding begins at 99 cents with no reserve!
