Description

'Warburton's Shakespear' The Works Of Shakespear In Eight Volumes. 
"The Genuine Text (Collated with all the former editions, and then corrected and amended) is here settled. Being restored from the blunder of the first editors and the interpolations of the two last. With a comment and notes, critical and explanatory by Mr Pope and Mr Warburton.
Dublin 1747
Printed for R. Owen, J. Leathley, G and A Ewing, W. and J. Smith, G. Faulkner, P. Crampton, A. Bradley, T. Moore, E. and J. Exshaw

A very rare set of the Dublin edition of Warburton's work. 
The books are in half-bound leather probably of mid 1700s origin. the leather had dried out and the hinges in most of the volumes have given with loose front and rear boards. All the text blocks are tight edges are soiled. In desperate need of rebinding. The condition is reflected in the price.
