A very good copy of this lovely reprint of John Austen's hauntingly illustrated edition of Hamlet, originally published in 1922.  An adherent of the Aesthetic Movement in England, along with Aubrey Beardsley and James A. M. Whistler, John Austen (1886-1948) reached the early pinnacle of his creativity with this Hamlet.  Black-line plates and ornamental illustrations throughout.
