"No one who speaks the English language can afford not to own this book!" IT is less than one inch thick. The average book of the same size contains about 200 pages. This book contains 1,352 pages. It contains the complete works of Shakespeare. Do you wonder that most people find this almost unbelievable? "You don't mean that it contains all of Shakespeare's works !" they exclaim. We assure them that it does. All his plays, all his poems, all his sonnets. "But they must be extracts, then," they say. No, there are NO extracts. Every thing is complete and unabridged. In ad dition, there is an index to characters and a complete glossary of 28 pages. Here, in short, is everything that could be ob tained in the ordinary cumbersome set of Shake speare. And at only a fraction of the cost! The type is NOT small; it is large, clear and easy to read. What is the secret, then, of this extraordinary volume? It is simply this: genuine India paper is used. This remarkable paper is so finely made that it is as light as those rare, handmade papers of the Italians. Yet it is amazingly strong, white and opaque. The Achievement of the Collins Clear-Type Press All over the world the Collins Clear-Type Press of Glasgow, Scotland, is noted for its superb craftsmanship in making books.
