This has to be one of my favourite things we have in our collection. I was introduced to Shakespeare by a touring acting troupe when I was about 10, they came to my school and they performed the Tempest. I was transfixed and that weekend went to the library and took out the complete works. I didn’t understand them of course but the seed was sown. This set is absolutely gorgeous it is in tree calf leather and has marbled edges and endpapers and is very tactile. It would make a wonderful gift for someone, maybe graduation, 18th birthday or even a christening gift. You could virtually guarantee the recipient would be unlikely to receive 2 of these. There is something magical about old books like these, it’s the smell it’s the feel and the look. There is such joy to be had owning something like this.
