Adopt a New Acquisition

Shakespeare in Words and Photographs

Shakespeare. Works. London, between 1889 and 1901

Adopt for: $450

William Shakespeare, 1564–1616. Works. London: Frederick Warne and Co.,[no date].

Notable for its six mounted, photographic plates by the late-19th century photographer Poulton, including images of Shakespeare from the Chandos portrait; Anne Hathaway's cottage; and Shakespeare's birthplace; this set of Works is an important addition to our extensive modern Shakespeare collection. Our copy was formerly in the library of the Worshipful Company of Drapers and bears their armorial stamp on the front cover. Originally, the Company was a trade association of wool and cloth merchants and has always been one of the most powerful companies in London politics. Queen Elizabeth II is a member.
