1765 8 Volume Set Shakespeare's Plays Sam Johnson Notes

The Plays of William Shakespeare, in Eight Volumes
with the Corrections and Illustrations of Various Commentators
 to which are added Notes by Sam. Johnson

Publication Date:  1765

Printed for:  J. And R. Tonson, C. Corbet, H. Woodfall, J. Rivington, R. Baldwin et al

Condition:  8 Volume Set

Very Good condition in calfskin bindings.   The bindings have been secured and attended to, resulting in this set being shelf/display ready and in outstanding collectible condition.

The books are clean, unmarked and with minimal tanning.  Quite remarkable for their age.   The binding on Volume I is somewhat darker than the binding on the others.

Rare Find and collectible.  The first printing of this series, of which this we believe is one, was limited to 1000 copies.
