Amazon review: 5.0 out of 5 stars Superb edition of the Bard's works 9 Mar 2012 By Foxtara This is a truly beautiful edition of Shakespeare's works. With lots of full plate magnificent illustrations and many more smaller illustrations, engravings and line drawings. The plays, sonnets and his poems are are also here. To fit them all in the print is a bit small, so for the short-sighted like me a magnifying glass or page-magnifier is a must, nevertheless the book is still a joy. It is also heavy as one would expect for the complete works. When you see the large and glorious illustrations, the beautiful style of the text and headings in well chosen fonts, and of course the genius of Shakespeare's work, you will see that it is a book to be treasured.
