This 1897 hardcover book contains the plays “King John” and “Richard III” by William Shakespeare, edited by Henry Morley, LL.D.

The first page of the book holds a beautiful illustration from the play “King John, Act 4 Scene 3 titled ‘Arthur Pembroke Salisbury, etc.’” Painted by R. K. Porter. Engraved by Isaac Taylor. First Published by F. & F. Boydell, Shakspeare Gallery, London.”

It has a forest green linen cover with gold writing on the spine, “Shakespeare” ““King John” “Richard III” “Doubleday & McClure Co.”

Author – William Shakespeare
Edited by - Henry Morley, LL.D.
Copyright – 1897
Publisher – Doubleday & McClure Company

Book measures 5 3/4" x 4 1/8" (14.6cm x 10.5cm).

Considering this book is over 100 years old it is in excellent condition. There is no wax cover on this book. The first page (no writing) is ripped a tiny bit. All pages are intact and attached. The corners of the book are slightly bent and there are some signs of wear on some of the edges. There are some small white spots on the front cover.

I do have other titles of Shakespeare’s works from this set. If you are interested in a specific title please contact me & I will see if I have the one you are looking for. Some are listed in the section linked below.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!
