It is not too early now to think of Christmas The famous single volume containing everything Shakespeare wrote. Printed in Scotland on India paper. Bound in America in flexible leather. All of Shakespeare 39 complete volumes in one! UNBELIEVABLE yet true. Here, in one limp leather, India paper volume, are con tained all the complete plays and poems of Shakespeare, usually pub lished separately in single volumes. The type is large and clear, printed on opaque India paper - 1352 pages. The thumb index makes place finding easy. And the beau tiful leather binding crowns a masterpiece of the book maker's art. In Glasgow, at Collins' Clear-Type Press, we found last fall a few hundred un bound copies of this master piece. We rushed them to New York and bound them at the great Collier bindery. Within three days after the appearance of our first ad vertisement the supply was exhausted. Since then, we have re peatedly cabled to Glasgow for more books. Now an other small edition has been received. We will fill orders as they come in-while the books last! All of the great master's writings are here, every word and line, one volume instead of 39: All's Well That Ends Well Antony and Cleopatra As You Like It Comedy of Errors Coriolanus iCmbeline Hamlet Julius Caesar King Henry IV (First part) King Henry IV (Second part) King Henry V King Henry VI (First part) King Henry VI (Second part) King Henry VI (Third part) King Henry VIII King John King Lear King Richard II King Richard III Lover's Complaint Love's Labour's Lost Macbeth Measure fo- Measure Merchant of Venice Merry Wives of Windsor Midsummer Night's Dream Much Ado About Nothing Othello Passionate Pilgrim Pericles Phoenix and the Turtle Rape of Lucrece Romeo and Juliet Sonnets Taming of the Shrew Tempest Timon of Athens Titus Andronicus Troilus and Cressida Twelfth Night Two Gentlemen of Verona Venus and Adonis Winter's Tale A Sir Henry Irving's Famous Essay on Shakespeare, Bio- I .S O:graphical Introduction, Index to Characters, and Glossary.
