Between 1791 and 1805, Boydell published a "magnificent and accurate" edition of the complete works of Shakespeare. To illustrate the edition and to provide images for the folio, Boydell obtained the assistance of the most eminent painters and engravers of the day. Artists included Richard Westall, Thomas Stothard, George Romney, Henry Fuseli, Benjamin West, Angelica Kauffman, Robert Smirke, John Opie, and Boydell's nephew and business partner, Josiah Boydell. Among the engravers were Francesco Bartolozzi and Thomas Kirk. All 15 volumes are in virtually perfect condition, tight, square, unmarked, and clean. Rebound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for J. W. Robinson Co. in the early 20th Century. An extremely attractive set. FINE. . B&W Engravings. 16mo 6" - 7" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 23568
