1884 date on copyright page; R. Worthington publishers, New York; hardbound oversized with red boards and black imprints; page binding good except very first pages. Binding and front cover look good.  Interesting:  "Skakspeare" is the spelling as it appears on the front cover and spine.


description -

Complete Works of William Shakespeare is the standard name given to any volume containing all the plays and poems of William Shakespeare. Some editions include several works which were not completely of Shakespeare's authorship (collaborative writings), such as The Two Noble Kinsmen, which was a collaboration with John Fletcher; Pericles, Prince of Tyre, the first two acts of which were likely written by George Wilkins; or Edward III, whose authorship is disputed.
