All three page edges are tipped in gold gilt and there is barely any wearing to gold gilt as sometimes happens with age. The binding is tight and straight and features Smyth sewn binding with concealed muslin joints. The hubbed (raised) spine adds to the fine binding. Inside the front and back endpapers are graced in brown moire fabric and there is an attached brown satin ribbon bookmark. Standard octavo book size or 6.5" x 9" with 1016 pages including index.

The Histories of William Shakespeare from Easton Press contains an intro by James G. McManaway and is finely illustrated by John Farleigh including a frontispiece specially commissioned in 1958. An edition of Shakespeare's Histories was first introduced by Peter Alexander in 1951 and used in this edition with permission. The edition with McManaway's intro, Alexander's text and Farleigh's illustrations was first published in 1958. It has been finely reproduced in this edition for collectors. It includes the intro along with a note on the illustrations by Farleigh.
