William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564-1616), the leading English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most well-known and widely-read author in all of English literature.

William Shakespeare rare books come in all shapes and sizes, with something to suit every book collector. Inevitably acquiring a First Folio in original condition is but a dream for most people, given the multi-million pound price tag, but other, less expensive options, are more readily available.

For book collectors looking for elegant works of Shakespeare, many of the Private Presses of the late 19th and 20th centuries produced many handsome editions, including the Nonesuch Press and Officina Bodoni. Shapero Rare Books also specialise in collected editions of Shakespeare, from the 18th century to the 20th century. These sets come in fine bindings, and make a handsome addition to any rare book collection or even a perfect present.
