The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, is perhaps Shakespeare’s most famous play. It is certainly one of his greatest tragedies with productions and versions reappearing continuously across the globe. Hamlet tells the story of its eponymous character’s revenge upon his uncle, Claudius, who murdered Hamlet’s father and married his mother, Gertrude. In five acts, the play presents some of Shakespeare’s most memorable side characters, too, including Polonius, Ophelia, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. This illustrated edition by the Easton Press is set from the First Folio text. It contains Edy LeGrand’s spectacular drawings, and it is part of the publisher’s Famous Editions series. For any Shakespeare collector, it is an essential volume.

This illustrated edition is in fine condition. In the original full gray leather with elaborate gilt stamping, fine. Raised bands. Gilt spine. Text block fine with LeGrand’s brilliant drawings. Gilt edges. Silk moire endpapers and bookmark sewn in. With the publisher’s original pamphlet and bookplate laid in.
