"Alas, poor Yorick!-I knew him Hortaio..." reads the except from Shakespeare's Hamlet. This illustration shows Hamlet, holding a skull, standing by the edge of a grave.

This fabulous vintage book illustration would be great gift for the Shakespeare collector or theatrical artist. It reads "Photogravure Goupil & Co." underneath the image.

This is a photogravure salvaged from a vintage book from 1892 that was no longer viable. This is particular page is from a lot of images I obtained which have an extraordinary amount detail and depth; each picture comes with its own protective tissue paper cover which describes in detail the story, and reference information for the image underneath. The back of the page is blank.

The overall size of this piece is approximately 9" x 12" (22.5 x 30cm).

This item is an antique, over 118 years old, and is sold as-is; please enlarge the pictures to see details. There are no bends or creases in the image, however there may be some minor roughness along the edges and the pages have yellowed.

This particular item has a tear mid lower left, but this does not extend into the image. It also has some minor bending along the edge.

You will receive the exact item in the images. It will be shipped in a protective sleeve and cardboard reinforced envelope. There is no additional shipping if it purchased with another item.
