' A fascinating little edition.' - Notes and Queries.
'A cheap, very comely, and altogether desirable edition.1 - Westminster Gazette. But a few years ago such volumes would have been deemed worthy to be considered editions de luxe. To-day, the low price at which they are offered to the public alone prevents them being so regarded.' - Studio.
' Handy in shape and size, wonderfully cheap, beautifully printed from the Cambridge text, and illustrated quaintly yet admirably by Mr. Byam Shaw, we have nothing but praise for it. No one who wants a good and convenient Shakespeare - without excursuses, discursuses, or even too many notes - can do better, in our opinion, than subscribe to this issue: which is saying a good deal in these days of cheap reprints.' - Vanity Fair.
'What we like about these elegant booklets is the attention that has been paid to the paper, as well as to the print and decoration; such stout laid paper will last for ages. On this account alone, the 'Chiswick' should easily be first among pocket Shake-speares.' - Pali Mall Gazette.
