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.
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.
