Life of Tymon of Athens" [with] The Tragedie of Julius Cæsar
[London]: [by Thomas Cotes for Robert Allot], [1632]. From the famed Second Folio of Shakespeare. Folio, quarter brown calf and marbled boards, gilt lettered and ruled on the spine. 107-150. A large and handsome copy, the binding in excellent order, the textblock quite nice and with only occasional and typical light spotting or aging. RARE EXAMPLE FROM THE SECOND FOLIO OF SHAKESPEARE. Two plays of Shakespeare’s great series of Roman plays, of which JULIUS CAESAR is without question the most famous. Complete and extracted from the Second Folio edition of his COMEDIES, HISTORIES, AND TRAGEDIES, a cornerstone--and some would say foundation--of English literature. While the complete Second Folio is one of the book collector's great prizes, a status well reflected in its price these days, this is an opportunity to acquire two of the most famous plays from the volume bound separately. Both of these works, along with the other Classical dramas, are believed to have been derived from Sir Thomas North’s great translation of Plutarch. Shakespeare’s version of JULIUS CAESAR is of such high regard that for many modern people, when they think Caesar, they are actually thinking Shakespeare.
