Designed by Daniel Haberman. Illustrated by Isadore Seltzer. Special edition. Publisher's black cloth, stamped to front board in gilt with author's facsimile signature, lettered in silver to spine; in the publisher's black cloth-covered slipcase. About fine, spine and slipcase lightly toned. Based on the First Folio edition of 1623, this special edition of Timon of Athens was published as the sixteenth volume in a series of annual Shakespearian keepsakes prepared for the friends of the publishers. A tragedy, this play focuses on an Athenian named Timon, whose abused generosity transforms him from a beloved gentleman into an embittered misanthrope. Notably, Timon of Athens is one of Shakespeare's later plays and is considered unfinished.
