William ShakespeareLondon: Allied Newspapers, Ltd., 1932. First Thus . Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. 2" tall. According to Miniature Book News #3 March, 1966, this set was originally printed about the same time as th Ellen Terry edition (Bryce) edition and the engravings are identical with exception that this (Allied) edition is printed on regular paper rather than India and is, thus, twice as thick. However, they advise that the Terry set is the smallest ever printed, so this set is right there, but for the added thickness. Each book is 2" x 1.4", the flexible boards are covered in black leatherette and have decorative end papers. Each comes with a frontispiece and a brief explanation. All are lightly rubbed and one or two have the covering cloth lifting at a corners. The set comes with a glossary volume and is housed in a wooden box with a list of all the volumes. This box is lovely, but since the set originally came in a small wooden book case, was apparently added later. In any case it makes a great addition to this uniquely collectible set. Based on some advertisements, this set was printed around 1932.

Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1838 edition. Excerpt: . . . men Walk under his huge legs, and peep about To find ourselves dishonourable graves. Men at some time are masters of their fates: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in trar Blare, -- But in ourselves, that we are underlings. Brutus, and Caesar: What should be in that Caesar1 Why should that name be sounded more than yours Write them together, yours is as fair a name; Sound them, it doth become the mouth as well; Weigh them, it is as heavy; conjure with them Brutus will start a spirit as soon as Caesar. (Shout) Now in the names of all the gods at once, Upon what meat doth this our Caesar feed, That he is grown so great Age, thou art shamd: Home, thou hast lost the breed of noble bloods! When went there by an age, since the great flood, But it was famd with more than with one man When could they say, till now, that talkd of Uomr That her wide walks eucompassd but one man A Now is it Rome indeed, and room enough, When there is in it but one only man. I O! yiu and I have heard our lathers say, . There was a Brutus once, that would have brookd The eternal devil to keep his state in Rome, As easily as a king. Bru. That you do love me, I am nothing jealous; What you would work me to, I have some aim: How 1 have thought of this, and of these times, I shall recount hereafter; for this present, I would not, so with love 1 might entreat you, Be any further movd. What you have said, I will consider; what you have to say, I will with patience hear: and find a time Both meet to hear, and answer, such high things. Till then, my noble friend, chew upon this; Brutus had rather be a villager, Than to repute himself a son of Rome Under these hard conditions as this time Is like to lay upon us. Cas. I am glad, that my weak words Have struck but thus much. . . This item ships from La Vergne,TN.
