Ten years and William Shakespeare

This gets mentioned less often, it seems to me, than the Quarto-Millennary (which I own) and Bibliography (which I don’t). I’ve assumed from the Q-M Monthly Letter and indeed from the Q-M itself that the highly interesting Macy comments on (many, but far from all) LEC books in the bibliography section of the Q-M are _not_ recycled from Ten years and William Shakespeare. Is that correct? And if so - what’s in the latter that’s not in the Q-M? And is it worth having? I’ve been wondering for a while and finally I now get around to asking you Wise Ones... I’ve not been able to answer this question for myself from pictures in eBay offers and such.

>1 GusLogan: Comparing the "Ten Years and William Shakespeare" commentary to the "Quarto-Millenary" almost all the content is reproduced verbatim in the Q-M, with the exception of Philip Van Doren Stern's essay "...And William Shakespeare". That being said the "Ten Years..." is still an interesting and inexpensive piece of LEC ephemera to add to your collection. Especially if you own the Shakespeare set.

But also, I’ve always been under the impression that it is difficult to find in collectible condition

>4 UK_History_Fan: I have two copies: one came with my Shakespeare set and is the leather bound variant - it's in pretty rough shape, but was formerly owned by Peter Bielenson so it has association value for me. I purchased the cloth/buckram variant for $20 a few years ago on ebay. It's in VG to VG+ condition.

>6 Sport1963: Yes, my cloth/buckram edition in VG/VG+ condition cost $13. Well worth it if one owns the Shakespeare set.
