The fourth and final play in Shakespeare's first tetralogy, it builds upon the events of the earlier Henry VI, parts 1-3. King Richard III is Shakespeare's second longest play, and as such is often performed in an abridged version. This special edition is the twenty-first volume in a series of annual Shakespearian keepsakes prepared for friends of the publishers.
