SPLENDID FULL MOROCCO EXTRA GILT
SHAKESPEARE, William ~ The Works.
London: Bickers, 1869
4 volume set, 9 inches tall. A rather spectacular Victorian full morocco binding with gilt raised bands, twin labels and ornate gilt tooling to the panels and boards. Gilt dentelles and all edges. Slight foxing to the titles, otherwise a clean text. An ink inscription on the first blank dated 1873, '....in memorial of Fonthill'. A splendid set.
