Based on the First Folio edition of 1623, this special edition of Romeo and Juliet was published as the twelfth volume in a series of annual Shakespearian keepsakes prepared for the friends of the publishers. A tragedy, this play tells the story of two star-crossed lovers whose pure love for one another is adulterated by their families' violent feud. Notably, Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare's most popular plays and, along with Hamlet, one of the most performed.
