Book Description London: Constable/ New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1934., 1934. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. xii, 400 pp; 4 plates. Original cloth. Very Good. 'In 1934 [Thomas J. Wise's] reputation was damaged by the publication of 'An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets' by John Carter and Graham Pollard. This proved that a large number of rare first edition pamphlets from 19th century authors which depended solely on Wise's published works for their authenticity were fakes. Wise and a fellow bibliophile Harry Buxton Forman had been involved in the fabrication and sale of many of the same pamphlets to collectors. Shortly after Wise's death the Library was sold to the British Museum by his widow for £66,000. The works were compared with the British Museum's former collection at which point it was discovered that over 200 book leaves were missing and 89 of these matching leaves were found in the Wise volumes. Henry Wrenn had built up a drama collection (housed in the University of Texas) and Wise had helped with supplying these volumes, when the Texas authorities sent relevant volumes for comparison, 60 of these books were also found to have been completed with thefts from the British Museum library. A detailed scientific investigation by David Foxon was published by the Bibliographic Society in 1959 with the conclusion that Wise must have known that some of the book leaves added to his collection were stolen and that it was probable that he would have taken the leaves himself' (Wikipedia).
