I missed the early part of this thread, but several years back I
received examination copies (for course adoption) of The Complete
Works... from Avenel Books, New York. It appears to be a reprint (or
facsimile-excuse me Terence) of the 19th Century Globe Edition, with
nice illustrations by J.  Gilbert (though not all that were in the Globe
edition, if I remember right).  It's copyrighted by Crown Books, 1975.

I realize this doesn't solve the problem of getting a copy of the actual
volume for research purposes; but didn't G. B. Harrison's edition use
the Globe text? I still see that on the shelves of local bookstores from
time to time.

If I remember correctly, A. L. Rowse's "Annotated Shakespeare" also used
the Globe text. That edition can often be found on the remainder shelves
in an inexpensive one-volume reprint.
