A MidSummer-Night's Dream—part 6

Here is my final installment of illustrations by W.H. Robinson for the wonderful full-of-wonder 1914 edition of A MidSummer Night's Dream — certainly one of the highest watermarks of the golden age of book illustration.

Bottom. Why do they run away? This is a knavery of them
to make me afeard.


I'm sorry to say that my edition is missing 2 of the color plates, so easily lost, as they were just tipped in lightly. Still, we've seen aplenty, thus cease our sorrow.

And so, good night unto you all.
