Hamlet, Prince of Denmark
John Austen's hauntingly illustrated edition, published in 1922, remains unparalleled among all other treatments of Hamlet to this day. An adherent of the Aesthetic Movement in England that included Aubrey Beardsley and James A. M. Whistler, Austen shifted to a much more commercial style later in his career, and Hamlet is one of the few artifacts of the early pinnacle of his creativity. Black-line plates and ornamental illustrations throughout.
This Calla Edition is an unabridged reprint of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, originally published by Selwyn & Blount, London, in 1922.
