1st part dated 1844. Issued in parts. Title page with gilt decoration. 3 vols contain 13 plays and 6 of the original wrappers. The original front wrapper shows a curious view of the Bard of Avon being paddled in a canoe by a native American while an American eagle holds a laurel wreath aloft and fairies and cherubs cavort. Plays included are: Hamlet; Macbeth; Othello; Winter's Tale; Merry wives of Windsor; Comedy of Errors; Taming of the Shrew; Much ado about nothing; Twelfth night; Romeo and Juliet; King Lear; Cymbeline; Merchant of Venice. Weir apparently a drawing master at West Point and teacher of Whistler. Certainly not the complete set envisaged by the editor as it should have included a life as well as the plays - the advertisement on the rear of wrapper number 1 states - A new era of Shakespeare in America. The most magnificent edition of the Bard of Avon ever published! To be illuminated and illustrated with about 1400 engravings executed on wood at an expense of about thirty thousand dollars [and it continues]. Wrappers are 1 - Hamlet, 2 - Othello, 6 - Macbeth, 8 Macbeth, 13 - Merry wives and 15 - Merry Wives. There are a couple of pages of ms notes bound in and one extra engraving that is severly browned. Spots, browning, marks and small tears throughout. Bound in half leather, rather worn, marbled boards discoloured and worn. Heavy volumes, extra postage will be required to send outside the UK.
