    Miniature Monday!  Large and small!  This 1904 set of William Shakespeare’s Complete Works, comes with its own miniature sized shelves, and is hanging out with it much older and larger relative (and our most frequently requested book for class sessions here at Iowa), our copy of Shakespeare’s second folio.

    David Bryce and Son, Glasgow, 1904. 

    Just bringing back one of our favorite Shakespeare posts to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday week.
