Format: Paperback
William George Clark and William Aldis Wright's version "The Unabridged William Shakespeare" has been diligently indentified with the traditional Cambridge edition, making this a profoundly reputable collection; and they have corrected faults found in the earlier texts to present a lucid and comparitively superior collection of Shakespeare's works. All of Shakespeare's plays and verse, along with a complete anthology of his sonnets, a glossary of Elizabethan English, an in-depth appendix containing fotenotes, and a comprehensive index of characters will be found here. This volume is a must have.

This is a beautifully leather bound book. I was more than pleased with the quality of this book. Was even more amazed at the price. I was not expecting much based on the price because I expected something of this quality to cost much more.

Sure, the Unabridged William Shakespeare tends be a bit unwieldy, and the text a bit small, but I suppose it would be as it contains everything the playwright and poet has written.
Having those two minor negatives in mind, this is still a very nice version to have sitting on your bookshelf. It has everything in one package and it's easy to pull down, flip to any page and start reading.
A few excellent features of the this volume are the index of all the characters from every play, a full glossary of Elizabethan English, notes on plays and even the first line of every sonnet for easy reference.
It's worth it to pick this one up and to enjoy at leisure.

As a given, the quality of the content is unsurpassed. Even to this day, Shakespeare must surely remain as one of the finest craftsmen (if not the finest) of the modern English language, and all English-speakers would do well to harken to the Bard.
Anyway, this printing (hardcover) is very attractive, at a distance. The leather (if it's genuine) is not of the highest quality, the pages have a tendency to stick together upon first opening of the book, a result of which is the rare white streak in the text. On a more positive note, the glossary at the back is of frequent use, though it lacks some words esoteric to this modern, American reader. I haven't really read their notes that also come in the back, so I can't comment on them.
However, the fact that one can obtain the complete works of Shakespeare, hardcover in leather, for a reasonable price, itself makes this edition desireable.

This book was in excellent condition. As a theatre teacher who loves to buy this book for graduation presents, I would buy 10 copies from this seller if they had them!

this book tells you more about human nature than you'll ever want to know. It's a hard read, but if you take your time you'll love it.
