It is a beautiful edition of the classic dramas of the great William Shakespeare (1564-1616), like almost all of the Bibliophile Circle, in perfect condition except for the following “flaws”, which are not very important but we must record , since not all bibliophiles have the same tastes when purchasing their books (those interested can ask us for photographs in more detail, if they need them):

A bit dirty front edge, with slight pen marks.
Cover with 3 small pen points.
On page 134 illustration indicated with the number 3 in ballpoint pen.
On page 137 idem with number 4.
On page 156 idem with the number 6.
