This offering is for The Comedies of Shakespeare only. Originally printed to accompany The Histories and Tragedies of Shakespeare, this is a single volume of The Comedies only. Illustrations Edward Ardizzone of London throughout. Shakespeare wrote 14 comedies and there are two 3-color illustrations for each.
