For some of us, the prose and poetry of William Shakespeare is among the best ever put to paper, a window onto a culture utterly removed from our own, yet with characters who remain wholly identifiable. For others, Shakespeare induces drinking—heavy, depressed, 17th-century-style drinking. The good news is, with this edition of The Complete Works you’ll never be far from dulling the Elizabethan pain. Made to conceal an included glass flask imported from Italy, this handsome volume is here to help anyone read 1600s British literature.
Flask features hand-stamped wax seal. Book is unglued so that pages may be flipped. Text is not intended for reading. Purchase includes no alcohol.
