THE PARCHMENT LIBRARY EDITION.
THE AVON EDITION.
The Text of these Editions is mainly that of Delius. Wherever a variant reading is adopted, some good and recognized Shaksperian Critic has been followed. In no case is a new rendering of the text proposed; nor has it been thought necessary to distract the reader's attention by notes or comments.
THE AVON EDITION. .
Printed on thin opaque paper, and forming 12 handy volumes, cloth, 18s., or bound in 6 volumes, 15s.
The set of 12 volumes may also be had in a cloth box, price 21s., or bound in Roan, Persian, Crushed Persian Levant, Calf, or Morocco, and enclosed in an attractive leather box at prices from 315. 6d. upwards.
“This edition will be useful to those who want a good text, well and clearly printed, in convenient little volumes that will slip easily into an overcoat pocket or a travelling-bag.”—St. James's Gazette.
“We know no prettier edition of Shakspere for the price.”—Academy.
“ It is refreshing to meet with an edition of Shakspere of convenient size and low price, without either notes or introductions of any sort to distract the attention of the reader.”-Saturday Review.
“It is exquisite. Each volume is handy, is beautifully printed, and in every way lends itself to the taste of the cultivated student of Shakspere.'
LONDON : KEGAN PAUL, TRENCH & Co., I, PATERNOSTER SQUARE. THE PARCHMENT LIBRARY EDITION.
In 12 volumes Elzevir 8vo., choicely printed on hand-made paper, and bound in parchment or cloth, price £3 125., or in vellum, price £4 IOS.
The set of 12 volumes may also be had in a strong cloth box, price £3 175., or with an oak hanging shelf, £3 18s.
SOME PRESS NOTICES. . . There is, perhaps, no edition in which the works of Shakspere can be read in such luxury of type and quiet distinction of form as this, and we warmly recommend it. Pall Mall Gazette.
“For elegance of form and beauty of typography, no edition of Shakspere hitherto published has excelled the Parchment Library Edition.' They are in the strictest sense pocket volumes, yet the type is bold, and, being on fine white hand-made paper, can hardly tax the weakest of sight. The print is judiciously confined to the text, notes being more appropriate to library editions. The whole will be comprised in the cream-coloured parchment which gives the name to the series.” - Daily News.
“The Parchment Library Edition of Shakspere needs no further praise.”-Saturday Review.
Just published. Price 55. AN INDEX TO THE WORKS OF SHAKSPERE.

My wind, cooling my broth,
Ant. Believe me, no : I thank my fortune for it,
Salar. Why, then you are in love.
Fie, fie !
