The Works of Shakspere [sic] [Shakespeare]
Charles Knight, editor
Published by Virtue and Co., London
circa 1860-1870


Original steel engraved plates about 150 years old — NOT modern reproductions!

Sheet size: approx. 10 x 14 inches • Image size: varies, but most are about 7 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches.

Please click on the thumbnails below for an enlarged view. Please note that the entire sheet is too large to scan, thus only the scannable portion is shown but the margins are full, as issued. Most plates have at least some foxing.

NOTE: THE ENGRAVINGS ON THIS PAGE ARE ON A SMALLER SIZE SHEET THAN THOSE ON THE PREVIOUS PAGE.
THE ENGRAVED IMAGE SIZE IS, HOWEVER, THE SAME. THEY ARE PROBABLY FROM A SLIGHTLY LATER EDITION.
