Tales from Shakespeare.
London: J. M. Dent & Co.; E. P. Dutton, New York,, 1909. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, gilt titles to spine and front cover, decoration to spine and front cover blocked in gilt, pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt. Colour frontispiece and 11 colour plates, black and white illustrations in the text, of which 2 are full-page, all by Rackham. Bookseller's ticket of Paul Elder & Co. to rear endpaper. Spine ends slightly bumped, very slight marking to covers, slight browning of endpapers. An excellent copy. First trade edition, first impression. This is one of three primary bindings, the other two being light blue and purple. Rackham had previously illustrated the work in 1899, but with the illustrations as uncoloured line-drawings; the publisher's prefatory note states that the latter "have since been worked over, revised, and coloured by the artist, while some entirely new designs have been added".
