Bonded-leather spine stamped in gold. Shakespeare's fourteen comedies and six tragedies retold in prose. From the foreword: the author's motivating force was a desire to enhance the children's literature of the early 1800s with vital and intricate stories, and turning to Shakespeare as a source was an obvious choice. The Lambs succeeded in paraphrasing the language of truly adult literature in children's terms with this book. Markers have marked through previous owner's name on clipped ffep and on verso, causing a small dampstain on upper corner of pages. Pictorial boards, maroon and gilt spine lettering. ; Children's Classics Series; Color Plates; Square Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 377 pages; 24986
