If I'm looking for an old book, or checking the value of the ones I 
have, I go to the Advanced Book Exchange...which has a number of $1 
copies of this book:

A. C. Bradley's _Shakespearean Tragedy_ is available for download or 
online reading in ascii or HTML at Project Gutenberg 
(http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/16966).

R.A. Cantrell recommended "All of Gurr".

Gurr's "William Shakespeare The Extraordinary Life of The Most 
Successful Writer of All Time" is quite different from most other books, 
in that it is based around some 300 colour photos of reconstructions of 
scenes from Shakespeare's life. There's not much about the plays 
themselves, but the book makes the story of Shakespeare's life very 
accessible to children.

William Godshalk wrote "Some rare and used book dealers are asking $35 
for a paperback copy of A. C. Bradley's Shakespearean Tragedy, a 'must' 
for school children."

You can get that book through Amazon new, or second-hand (through 
Amazon) for 50p (1 dollar!).

And what about "The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare", a substantial 
encyclopedia.

You could consider buying the complete set of BBC Shakespeare plays on 
DVD, though at around 160 dollars for the entire set, that would knock 
quite a hole in your budget - do others think that investment would be 
worth it.
