The Usual Suspects

Shakespeare. The Plays of William Shakspeare. London: T. Longman, B. Law and Son, C. Dilly, et al., 1793

Certain series of prints turn up again and again in extra-illustrated books. Some, like John Thane’s British Autography, were not specifically intended for grangerizing, but because of their format and subject matter they proved irresistible. Others, like Sylvester and Edward Harding’s Shakspeare Illustrated, were advertised as being suitable to illustrate any edition of Shakespeare. These are only two examples among many.
