TALES FROM SHAKESPEAR. FOR THE USE OF YOUNG PERSONS. London: Printed for Thomas Hodgkins, at the Juvenile Library, Hanway-Street (Opposite Soho-Square), Oxford-Street; and to be had of all booksellers, 1807. 12mo, two volumes: pp. [i-iii] iv-ix [x] [1] 2-235 [236: blank]; [i-iv] [1] 2-261 [262-264: ads], twenty engraved illustrations after drawings by William Mulready, attractively bound in twentieth-century burgundy calf, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. First edition. The first attempt to make Shakespeare accessible to a young audience. Mary Lamb, whose name was omitted from the earliest editions, was responsible for the comedies, while Charles wrote the tragedies. A mixed issue, without the T. Davison imprint on page [236] of volume one, and the earlier Hanway Street address on the first page of advertisements of volume two. A lovely copy. (#160991).
