Three volume set, "Reprints of the Early and Very Rare Jest-Books Supposed To Have Been Used By Shakespeare". Volume I Contains: I. A Hundred Mery Talys; II Mery Tales and Quicke Answers. Volume II comprises: Mery Tales of Skelton; Jests of Scogin; Sackfull of Newes; Tarlton's Jests; Merrie Conceited Jests of George Peele; Jacke of Dover. The third volume contains: Merie Tales of the Mad Men of Gotham; XII Mery Jests of the Wydow Edyth; Pasquils Jests With Mother Bunches Merriments; The Pleasant Conceits of Old Hobson; Certayne Concepts and Feasts; Taylors Wit and Mirth; Conceits, Clinches, Flashes, an Whimsies. All three are edited with introduction and notes by W. Carew Hazlitt, of the Inner Temple, Barrister-At-Law. Published in London in 1864 by Willis and Sotheran. This is truly a beautiful matched set, bound in 3/4 tan leather with mottled paper covered boards, mottled endpapers, and mottled page edges. There is a small book label (A. J. Cox) inside front cover of each, otherwise no marks or writing. Sextodecimo, 4 3/4" X 6 1/2", about 3 3/4" thick for the set. Pagination changes for each section, but there are about 1000 pages more or less. Five raised bands on each spine with gilt decoration and titles. Mottled paper covered boards are in excellent condition with virtually no wear. The leather has a few scuffs and a bit of edgewear with a few darkened spots, but nothing major or glaring. Miniscule cracks are visible along the spine but no splits. A bit of preservative or wax would do the leather good, but I will leave that to the purchaser's discretion. Interior hinges are a bit weak, but solid. Volume III may have had the front hinge repaired at some point in the past as the endpaper is seperated all along the hinge. Top edge mottling is darkened on all three but still visible. All in all a very attractive and solid set of a very desirable title. I have pictures available of each showing faults, feel free to contact me if desired. Codice inventario libreria 002329
