Large, attractive edition of the works of Shakespeare, including the histories, comedies, tragedies, poems and doubtful plays. One volume of the set is a biography of Shakespeare by the editor. Three-quarter leather with beautiful marble paper-covered boards and page edges. Make sure to adequately space the books and manuscripts in storage to prevent overcrowding. Bookends work well for keeping texts upright and spaced, although very tall books and manuscripts should lay flat to protect to their bindings. Ideally, you should keep old books and manuscripts in protective boxes or sleeves made from acid-free materials.

"The text given by Mr. Knight. is founded upon the most careful collations; and a reason is assigned in those editions for every deviation from the received text of the modern copies. To print the Text of the Words of Shakespeare, such as we may judge that it proceeded from his pen, so as to make his real words accessible to all, is the object. This Original Charles Knight edition is highly sought after by collectors. I myself own the entire set and until I am dying of thirst of starvation will never sell them! This is by far one of the best Shakespeare Charles Knight Sets ever listed on Ebay! These books are in excellent condition and far superior to any other Knight Shakespeare set.

The Pictorial Edition of the Works of Shakspere / Edited by Charles Knight. Published: London: Virtue & Co., [–42?] There is no date of publication in this edition, but having done some research I am inlined to believe that there a strong possibility that it is the second revised edition from 8 Volumes: 2. The Pictorial Edition of the Works of Shakespeare 8 Vol. Set, Charles Knight (C. ) Beautifully bound leather over hard-boards all eight volumes of Knights pictorial Shakespeare have marbled edges and end papers, creamy white, supple pages high quality printing and tight bindings, fly leaves protect the fine detailed front piece engravings.
