Shakespeare versus Shallow by Leslie Hotson.
Published by the Nonesuch Press, London, 1931, first edition.
A very good blue cloth hardback wrapped in a good dustjacket. Dustjacket is worn and nibbled along the top edge, with additional shelf wear and discoloration to spine.
The book itself is very good - approaching near fine, but carries some related newspaper articles glued to the first two blank endpapers, with an additional news clipping loosely inserted at rear.
Text is nice and clean with occasional spotting. There is spotting to the edge of the uncut vertical edge of the text block. Book has probably never been read as there are many uncut text pages, as issued. Illustrated.
xiv + 375pp.
Approximately 237mm high x 170mm wide x 37mm deep.
Approximately 930g unpacked.
