Works of Shakespeare by Crowell & Co.

PRESENTING AN EXTREMELY RARE  EDITION hardback copy of  The Works of William Shakespeare, Published by Thomas Y Crowell & Co., New York & London circa 1880.

This RARE book is in fair condition for its age….. some very minor ‘knicks’ on the edges of the spine and cover……but otherwise GOOD. The text is almost perfect. We believe that it is missing it’s first couple of pages including the title page….this is clearly reflected in the price.

Red cloth jacket with gold lettering. String bound.

AS AN ADDED BONUS…..the Book comes signed by it’s original owner, Rosa M. McMillan of Waxahachie, Texas….who became a well known Dallas socialite at the beginning of the 20th Century.

This book was part of the extensive private collection of the Calvert Hall/Obenchain/Godwin/McMillan Collection formerly of Bowling Green, KY and later, Highland Park, Texas.

AS you can see from the history of this Collection (see our PDF) the family have very strong ancestral ties to the States of Virginia, Kentucky and Texas.
