William Shakespeare's The Sonnets and The Lover's Complaint
Penguin Books 1938. First edition. Complete with incredibly rare unclipped dust jacket. Aside from the sonnets and A Lover's Complaint, includes a chronological list of Shakespeare's works, a short summary of the life of Shakespeare, an introduction, editor's notes and several pages left blank for reader's notes (entitled thus).
In astonishing condition for an 80 year old paperback. Penguin had only been publishing their paperbacks for four years when this book was made making it one of the earliest examples it is possible to own. This would make a truly wonderful Valentine's Day gift.
Condition: Amazing condition considering age. Vivid reds. Dust cover and book a little scuffed at the edges and fading to spine of dust cover (book still bright). Inside the pages are clean with minimal foxing to the edges.
Dimensions: 7" x 4.1"
Available alone, with a P&C library card, or as a P&C box. Full details here.
