Comments PROVENANCE:

Sir George Augustus William Shuckburgh-Evelyn (1751-1804), Baronet, Member of Parliament, mathematician, astronomer, and Fellow of the Royal Society (signature dated 1800 on flyleaf, along with a note ‘Third edit. Much scarcer than the 2d’, no. 5628 on pastedown). See lot 101 for more details on Shuckburgh as a bibliophile. At his death in 1804 his collection was inherited by his daughter Julia and passed by descent: on Julia’s death in 1814 it passed to her husband, Charles Jenkinson (1784-1851, later third Earl of Liverpool); then to Lady Selina Jenkinson (1812-83), Lord Liverpool’s second daughter, whose first marriage was to William Charles Wentworth-Fitzwilliam, Viscount Milton (1812-35); Lady Mary Selina Charlotte Wentworth-Fitzwilliam (1833-99), only daughter of the above, who married William Henry Berkeley, second Viscount Portman (1829-1919); Henry Berkeley, third Viscount Portman (1860-1923), whose wife Emma Andalusia Frere Kennedy (d.1929) was the widow of Lionel George Henry Seymour Dawson-Damer, fifth Earl of Portarlington (1858-1900); and continued by descent to the present owner.

THE THIRD FOLIO, SECOND ISSUE, AUGMENTED WITH PERICLES; THE RAREST OF THE FOUR FOLIOS.

THE SHUCKBURGH THIRD FOLIO IS EXCEPTIONALLY FINE. IT IS TALL, FRESH AND IN BIBLIOPHILE CONDITION.

A legend has long persisted that a large proportion of this edition was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666, an assertion also made by George Shuckburgh on the flyleaf of the present copy. Even though the pre-fire address of the publisher, Chetwind, is not known, Jackson notes that the legend ‘would seem to be substantiated by the records’ (Pforzheimer III, p. 939).

The Third Folio is a page-for-page reprint of the Second Folio, augmented in its second issue by seven additional plays, of which only Pericles is authentic. The other six plays are now regarded as spurious, although all appeared in Shakespeare's lifetime with either his name or initials attached. The first issue came out without the added plays and with or without the portrait on the title-page dated 1663. The second issue added the seven plays and is known by the frontispiece-portrait; Jonson's verses below the portrait cancel the ‘To the Reader’ leaf and the 1664 title cancels the 1663 title; both the cancels and the cancellanda are sometimes present.

Although the name of the publisher, Philip Chetwind (d.1680) appears alone on the title-page, other owners of copyright were Eleanor Cotes, Miles Flesher, William Leake, John Martin, Gabriel Bedell, Thomas Collins and Alice Warren. Robert Allot's widow, Mary, was forced to relinquish her husband's copyrights before marrying Chetwind, but Chetwind successfully contested the assignment and recovered the copyrights on her behalf. The printing itself was divided between Roger Daniel, a second shop perhaps that of John Hayes, and Alice Warren.

Samuel Pepys records in his Diary purchasing an edition of Shakespeare's plays in 1664; he subsequently sold it when he acquired the newest edition, the Fourth Folio, in 1685.
