[10 vols, duo.] 1825.

Respecting the merits of Bowdler's Family Shakspeare it is curious to contrast the opinions of
the two leading quarterlies. " Among the most extraordinary attempts at moral improvement,
none, perhaps, is better calculated to excite a sarcastic smile than the publication of a ' Family
Shakspeare,' from which all objectionable passages are expunged. This is Jack tearing off the
lace from Lord Peter's coat with a vengeance" — S^uarterly Re-vkiv. "We are of opinion
that it requires nothing more than a notice to bring this very meritorious publication into
general circulation." — Edinburgh Re-vkiv.

Jansen Portrait, by H. Robinson. A literary and historical Notice is prefixed to each Play.
"The present collection of Shakspeare's Flays differs in arrangement from any that has hitherto
been published. The Tragedies, Comedies, and Historical Plays, are divided ; and in each
division, the consecutive order of the pieces has reference to the country in which the action is
laid, or to the epoch at which it is supposed to have taken place. Such as are founded on
Grecian or Roman occurrences, are distinctly separated from those which commemorate the
events of British history ; and in each class a proper chronological priority is as much as
possible maintained. Thus the merry knights of Christendom are not associated with the
sober demagogues of Rome; nor the belles and beaux of Venice confounded with the 'worn
and withered' phantoms of a Scottish heath." — Extract from Preface.
