Alexander Dyce (30 June 1798 15 May 1869) was a Scottish dramatic editor and literary historian. In 1857 his edition of Shakespeare was published by Moxon; and the second edition was issued by Chapman & Hall in 1866. He also published Remarks on Collier's and Knight's Editions of Shakespeare (1844); A Few Notes on Shakespeare (1853); and Strictures on Collier's new Edition of Shakespeare (1859), a contribution to the Collier controversy, which ended a long friendship between the two scholars. By the time of his death, Dyce had collected a valuable library, containing many rare Elizabethan books, and this collection was left to the South Kensington Museum (Victoria and Albert Museum). His wide reading in Elizabethan literature enabled him to explain much that was formerly obscure in Shakespeare. While preserving all that was valuable in former editions, Dyce added much fresh matter. His Glossary, a large volume of 500 pages, was the most exhaustive that had appeared.

Note on the Robert Browning Books below.
I think these four volumes have been rebound, and the binder has made a mix up. They are perhaps a part of a set of maybe 6 volumes.

I will sell the lot for $80. The bindings are all very good and would look good on the bookshelf.
