This book is a lovely example, all pages are present, but sadly only two of the six original lithographs are present (see below for detailed condition). The cover page reads: “A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE. NEW YORK: E. P. DUTTON & COMPANY, 31, WEST TWENTY-THIRD STREET” and the reverse shows a nice illustration and beneath reads: “PRODUCED AND PRINTED BY ERNEST NISTER AT NUREMBURG. COPYRIGHT.”
