Henry Huntington took great pride in his Shakespeare collection, which is one of the four largest in the world, matching that of two great libraries in England. This generously illustrated volume introduces readers to Shakespeare the man, the poet, and the playwright, using examples from The Huntington's reserve of rare items. The book also addresses the valuable scholarship that has resulted from studies of this collection. While most of the color illustrations are from The Huntington‰۪s extra-illustrated Turner Shakespeare, the volume also includes images drawn from the art collections and other rare books in the Library.
