SHAKESPEARE, William
The Royal Shakespeare Theatre Edition of The Sonnets.
London: Shepheard-Walwyn at The Stellar Press, 1974. London: Shepheard-Walwyn at The Stellar Press,, 1974. Folio. Original red cloth, title to spine and front cover in gilt, grey endpapers. Housed in the publisher's card slipcase. Printed in red and black. A fine, fresh copy, in the original slipcase with a little fading and rubbing. Signed limited edition, number 132 of 260 copies, signed on the introduction leaf by the actress Dame Peggy Ashcroft and on the limitation leaf by the calligrapher. This edition of the sonnets is printed in calligraphic form, since, as Ashcroft writes in her introduction, "when first written the Sonnets circulated 'among his private friends'... it seems most appropriate that they should be offered once again in a hand-written form".
Bookseller: Peter Harrington [United Kingdom]
