With a frontispiece to the first two volumes. Includes their collaborative plays, The Woman Hater, Cupid's Revenge, and The Noble Gentleman.
In a full calf binding with gilt stamping to the spines. Externally, generally sound. Volumes III, V, and XI are missing a spine label. The joint front joint has failed to volumes I, II, VI, VIII, and X so the front boards are detached. The front joint to volumes III and IV, and the rear joint of volume I are extremely tender, and may the boards may detached with further handling. The calf is torn to the rear joints of volumes III, V, VI, VII, IX and X but has been repaired. The front joint of volume VII is starting, but firm, and both the front and rear joints are starting but firm to volume XI. The rear hinge is starting, and is a little tender to volumes VII and VIII. Internally, firmly bound, with a little strain to the rear of volume III. Aside from the plates, pages are generally bright and clean, with some occasional light spots, and the odd bit of marginalia in pencil.
