Tauchnitz Editions


Shakespeare in 'Shaw' format

Posted by Baronbern on February 15, 2012 at 3:35 PM

Following on from the discussion below of Bernard Shaw’s plays in Tauchnitz, I’ve recently come across a copy of a Shakespeare play in the Shaw format. Although undated, I assume this is pre-war and the colophon of ‘Printed by Oscar Brandstetter, Leipzig’, suggests not earlier than about 1936. The setting of the text appears to be unaltered from that used by Tauchnitz for several decades, but the 1868 date has finally disappeared from the title page.

I can’t find any reference to this format in Todd & Bowden, and as I’ve never come across one before, I assume it was not produced in anything like the quantity of earlier printings of Shakespeare plays. Maybe it was only introduced just before the war, and so little used. Did all the individual Shakespeare plays appear in this format?


There’s also an intriguing reference on the rear cover to “separate editions of ‘Sonnets’ and ‘Poems including Sonnets’”. The only separate Tauchnitz Editions of these that I’m aware of are those issued during the First World War. Could these still have been on sale twenty years or more later, or had new editions been published?
