Hamlet by Shakespeare

This exclusive British Library device cover is an authentic reproduction of one of a 1911 printing of Shakespeare’s longest and probably most-performed play. Its origins are somewhat obscure, with three early editions existing (1603, 1604 and 1623), all differing in length and content. Notable Hamlets have included Garrick, Irving, Olivier, Gielgud and more recently David Tennant and Jude Law. Select below to choose your cover size.
