The Tales from Shakespeare were specifically intended for young children as an introduction to Shakespeare's works, never as a substitute.

The love and understanding the authors brought to their subject can still be appreciated in the plots' skillful compression, the faithful representation of the characters, the use wherever possible of Shakespeare's original words, and the beauty and simplicity of their own prose.

Tales from Shakespeare is an excellent addition to your vintage Shakespeare collection or home library.


The book Shakespeare is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. Please note the wear on the cover, as shown in the photos.

Please use pictures as a guide. Have any questions or need more photos, ask.

The vintage items I share with you have been previously owned and loved. They may show some wear as is typical for vintage pieces.
