I have a three volume set of The Library Shakespeare published

Resolved Question:

I have a three volume set of The Library Shakespeare published by William Mackenzie and illustrated by Sir John Gilbert, George Cruikshank and R. Dudley. Volume 1 is comedies, volume 2 is tragedies and volume 3 is histories. I can find no publishing date printed. Each volume is approx. 9" wide, 11.5" high and 1.5" deep. They seem old. Do they have any value?

Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. There were 8 volumes in this set. William Mackenzie, London. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Sir John Gilbert, George Cruikshank and R. Dudley (illustrator). Book is undated, as usual with this publisher's productions, but probably hails from the 1870s or 1880s. There are numerous B&W drawings throughout the text; the front of the book contains a number of tissue-guarded chromolithograph plates. Contents are printed on decent quality heavyweight paper. Each volume has a value of $25.00 to $35.00 US dollars depending on condition. I hope this helps you.
