Shakespeare, William (Subject) & Crane, Milton (Author/Editor). SHAKESPEARE'S ART: SEVEN ESSAYS. Chicago, IL: University Of Chicago Press, 1973. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 168 pages. Fine/Fine.

Landmark collection of essays on subject. Originally presented as The Tupper Lectures on Shakespeare at George Washington University. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only by a University Press. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Milton Crane's "Shakespeare's Art". A stupendous collection. Seven critical essays by Shakespeare specialists thereby presenting a diversity of points-of-view rather than a unified perspective, on The Bard. Scrupulously edited by Milton Crane, himself a Shakespeare scholar, the author of "Shakespeare's Prose" and several volumes of short stories and poetry. An absolute "must-have" title for Milton Crane and Shakespeare readers/collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. The greatest writer in the English language of all time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO HAROLD BLOOM TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0226118355. $20.00
