    Critical Observations on Shakespeare by Upton, John

    George and Alexander Ewing, Dublin, 1747. Hardcover. Good/No Jacket. 287 pages plus index (complete). Note: The book was originally published in London in 1746. However, the Dublin publishing world was busy, competitive, at times ruthless, keen eyed. George Ewing and his brother, Alexander, were no exception. Despite having published a very few of Shakespeare's plays under their own imprint, they felt that more general books about Shakespeare would have a good local market. This publication is part of that project. A comfortable, contentedly aged copy. Fully bound in leather. The boards are marked and worn and scuffed all about.the front board has become detached and has been re-attached with a strip of leather. They are nonetheless, characterful and sound of nature and health. The spine has wear about the seams. The boards have been burnished and by handling given a smoky appearance. The frontpaste down has an ex-libris plate from Shakespeare scholar, Rev A P Dodd. The pages bear their age with patience and dignity. There is evidence of much contented use throughout. Nonetheless, the pages are comfortable, clear, assured, amiable, scholarly, certain, more than competent. A handy, gentlemanly copy. fk
