SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM. 1564-1616.
As You Like It; The Taming of the Shrew; All's Well That Ends Well. [London: Printed by Thomas Cotes, 1632.]
Folio (303 x 208 mm). 70 pp. Modern red morocco backed cloth. Minor soiling to leaves, lower edge of final leaf repaired and extended, a few marginal repairs throughout.

SECOND PRINTING OF THREE SHAKESPEARE COMEDIES, including two of his most popular, As You Like It and Taming of the Shrew, extracted from the Second Folio. The first printing of all three plays was in the First Folio, with these printed shortly thereafter in 1632. As You Like It, with its strong notes of romance and adventure, remains one of the most beloved and most performed plays, and includes the famous speech by the melancholy Jacques, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts...." The earliest versions of the plays widely accessible to many buyers.
