A FINE COPY OF SHAKESPEARE’S WORKS. Charles Whittingham was the “‘uncle’, printer and founder of the Chiswick Press.” However, even before setting up this press, Whittingham had set precedents in printing, typography, types of paper used and for being the “‘first printer to develop fully the overlaying of wood engravings for book illustration,’ and was the first to print woodcuts perfectly.” [Dict of Nat’l Bio] Whittingham also distinguished himself for producing compact editions of authors put out by rival booksellers for less money. Thus, he made it possible for more people to read contemporary authors.
A very beautiful and complete edition. This binding is in the style of the best London binders of the period.
