1773 Complete PLAYS of William Shakespeare Illustrated Theatre Romeo & Juliet

“The remarkable thing about Shakespeare is that he is really very good - in spite of all the people who say he is very good.” –Robert Graves

A rare set of the plays of William Shakespeare. This ten volume set includes the most famous works of Shakespearean theatre including Romeo and Juliet, Much Ado, and Merry Wives of Windsor. According to Lowndes,

"This edition, in which were united ... Dr. Johnson with ... George Steevens, superseded all previous editions and became the standard for future editors and publishers." -- Lowndes (Jaggard, p. 504).

In addition to the ten volumes of Shakespearean plays, the final two volumes are a supplement to the literature by Johnson Steevens.
