Specimens of the English Dramatic Poets

Charles Lamb


LAMB, Charles. Specimens of the English Dramatic Poets Who Lived About the Time of Shakespeare. London: George Bell & Sons, 1910. Octavo, contemporary full navy calf, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and front board, brown morocco spine label, marbled endpapers and edges. $500.

Handsomely bound collection of Elizabethan and Jacobean dramatic poetry.

Edited with notes by Charles Lamb. “I have chosen wherever I could to give entire scenes, and in some instances successive scenes, rather than to string together single passages and detached beauties, which I have always found wearisome in the reading in selections of this nature.” With prize bookplate from the Merchant Taylor’s School, in a prize binding.

A fine volume.
