Cool Vintage William Shakespeare 4 Tragedies & 4 Comedies Small Paperbacks-1966:
This is a set of two vintage Washington Square Press paperback books---Four Tragedies by William Shakespeare and Four Comedies by William Shakespeare. The 4 Tragedies include Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Julius Caesar, and Hamlet. The 4 Comedies include A Midsummer Night's Dream, As You Like It, The Tempest, and Twelfth Night. These two small and colourfully trendy books were published by Washington Square Press in 1966 and they very much reflect the 60s with their bold black abstract cover illustrations on bright backgrounds of turquoise and coral. They are both in decent, acceptable condition, both showing wear to their covers, around the edges and the corners. Each book seems to contain all pages, securely. Four Tragedies has a name written inside the front cover, and a price from a resale, and also has some underlinings and some notes in margins, but it is completely readable. Four Comedies has a scribble in one of the front pages that doesn't interfere with any text, and I could not find any underlinings or margin notes in this book. Both are illustrated, with complete unabridged Cambridge text, glossaries, and introductions by Pulitzer Prize winner Mark Van Doren. Both books were designed by Maxwell Marxe.
