Subject:        Globe Shakespeare?

I have a query that I am hoping that someone may be able to help me
with.  For the purposes of my dissertation I require access to a "Globe"
Shakespeare i.e. the Cambridge edition from the end of the last
century.  I have found them difficult to track down and expensive when I
find them.

Then just recently I discovered a complete works that used to belong to
my wife's uncle.  It has no publication dates on it but, as he probably
bought it for his junior high school year around 1936, I am wondering if
it may be a cheap reprint of the Cambridge edition.  Does anybody know
if there is a way to tell if it is the "Globe" edition or not?

The title page gives the following details: London & Glasgow: Collins
Clear-type Press, (no year)

There is an introduction by St. John Ervine, followed by some 51 pages
of biographical information, and then an essay on "Shakespeare and
Bacon" by "the late Sir Henry Irving".

Does anyone have any ideas?
