Tales from Shakespeare

Charles and Mary Lamb; William Shakespeare

The Folio Society 2003

Binding:  Hardback  |  Condition: Very Good  | 

Charming Folio Society edition of Mary and Charles Lamb's enduring prose adaptations of Shakespeare's plays, first published in 1807. Though intended for younger readers, the fairy-story style renderings have a timeless appeal. With an introduction by Katherine Duncan-Jones and colour images of paintings of scenes from Shakespeare. Complete with slipcase. Very mild foxing to fore-edge and extremely faint sunning to spine. Otherwise contents are crisp and pristine. Very good.
