The preface to this work from The Players' Shakespeare set states that the works are "illustrated by artists interested in the modern stage, whose object has been to aid in creating for the reader the atmosphere of the ideal dramatic representation". It is a good example of illustrators depicting scenes from productions rather than directly from the text of the play. This volume was illustrated by Albert Rutherston (1881-1953), who was also a stage designer.
