Reader's note

Looking for beautiful vintage books to stand out on your bookshelf? This decoratively covered edition of Tales From Shakespeare would be a charming addition to any home library. Written by Charles and Mary Lamb in 1807, intended "for the use of young persons", while retaining as much Shakespearean language as possible. Mary was responsible for retelling the comedies and Charles the tragedies. They omitted the more complex historical tales, including all Roman plays, and modified those they chose to retell in a manner sensitive to the needs of young children, but without resorting to actual censoring. This edition includes the twelve stories: Romeo and Juliet; King Lear; Othello; Macbeth; The Merchant of Venice; The Comedy of Errors; Hamlet, Prince of Denmark; The Tempest; As You Like It; Much Ado About Nothing; A Midsummer Night's Dream; Twelfth Night. The perfect gift for all lovers of classic literature and rare, vintage books.
