“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: They have their exits, and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.” – William Shakespeare, As You Like It.

First edition of William Shakespeare’s ‘Seven Ages of Man’ illustrated with a beautiful series of illustrations after Thomas Stothard, who happened to be the most prominent illustrator during his lifetime (1755-1834). This rare collection of engravings is accompanied by a full-page engraved speech from William Shakespeare which includes, perhaps, his most famous quote (seen above.) Each age of man is printed with a color stipple-engraving, and each plate is watermarked 1794.
