Four first or early Shakespeare editions in Czech.

Despite the numbering of the volumes of this series, it seems that the copies vary in content, they were supposedly custom made for subscribers, thus the dates of the plays the volume contains do not always correspond to the date on the title page. I give the most probable dates of each title according to the NKC - Electronic Catalogue of the National Library of the Czech Republic, however, what we find in the book might be a later issue of the indicated edition.

1. Perikles, kníže Tyrský (Pericles, Prince of Tyre): This is the first Czech translation of the play. Published first in this series in 1862.

2. Veta za vetu (Measure for Measure): This is the first Czech translation of the play. Published first in this series in 1862.

3. Cymbelín (The Tragedie of Cymbeline): This is the first Czech translation of the play. Published first in this series in 1856.

4. Král Jindřich VI. Díl první (Henry VI, Part 1): This is the first Czech translation of the play. Published first in this series in 1858.
