The Dramatic Works of William Shakspere [sic] [Shakespeare]...
by Henry Stebbing, M.A.
London: James S. Virtue
[NOTE: our plates have John McGowan of London as the publisher, but they are identical to the Virtue plates, thus we believe the printing was started by McGowan and then taken over by Virtue. Public records for McGowan are only available between 1825-1845.]
Original steel engravings over 165 years old — NOT modern reproductions!
Sheet size: approx. 7 3/4 x 10 inches •
Image size: varies, but most are about 4 1/2 x 5 7/8 inches.
All sheets have at least some foxing, though the image area is clean in most cases.
Please see enlargements for extent of foxing, very typical of prints from this time period.
