My book came from Amazon. Some of the pages were not cut, so I had to separate them myself, and I'll have to eventually cut them down to the size of the other pages. The book has a slight razor cut across the back. Scratches, cuts, etc. are common with books I order from Amazon. I've sent so many back! The book was placed in a box with no packing material, but that didn't seem to hurt it. It has a glossy cardboard cover like the Riverside Shakespeare, and no dust jacket or ribbon. I would pay more for a better cover, ribbon and binding.
The pages are easy to read with a decent size type with two columns per page.
Most important for me: notes are at the bottom of each column, and the corresponding number for each note is in the right margin, making it really easy to reference the notes.
Plus, it's crazy cheap. This book is obscenely big for the price.
This is my favorite edition of Shakespeare's complete works. The editing is thoughtful, and the finished product is poetic and understandable. The footnotes are thoughtful, brief, and unobtrusive. These are Shakespearean editors who respect your intelligence.
I tend to favor the Norton edition's General Introduction to this one, but I prefer Riverside's introductions to the individual plays. There is no perfect edition of Shakespeare's complete works. For what I look for in a collection, though, this edition satisfies most of the criteria, and so I wholeheartedly recommend it to others.
