Works.
(Leipzig Ernst Ludwig Presse 1925-1931) - Seven volumes, a complete set as published. One of 250 copies. Only 200 copies of the seventh volume were printed. The dedication notes that this edition was produced as an homage to T.J. Cobden-Sanderson and the German editions of Go√ęthe printed at the Doves Press. Designed and with initial lettering by Christian Heinrich Kleukens, incorporating a font that carries the same austere elegance as the Doves fonts. An uncommon set, this copy is even more so for its binding of vellum-backed green boards, in their original green paper dust wrappers and paper-covered slipcases. The gilt work on the spines is reminiscent of the work done at the Doves Bindery. Light wear to slipcases, one of which shows staining. One jacket significantly chipped and torn, a few others with smaller tears to spines, mostly closed. Overall, a fine set of perhaps the most beautiful edition of Shakespeare's works printed in Germany. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
