About this Item

First edition of this response to Malone's Inquiry into the Authenticity of Certain Miscellaneous Papers, an analysis of William Henry Ireland's now-infamous Shakespearean forgeries. Chalmers, though reluctantly conceding the inauthenticity of the documents, here explains in detail why so many were taken in by the scam ? providing much material of interest for both Shakespeare scholars and historians of literary frauds. The volume is illustrated with a facsimile of five Shakespeare signatures, engraved by I. Girtin. 8vo (21.2 cm, 8.4"). iv, 628 pp.; 1 plt. ESTC T138271; Lowndes, II, 404; Allibone, 2036. Recent quarter morocco over marbled paper?covered sides, spine with gilt-stamped title and gilt-stamped decorations in compartments. Title-page and a few others stamped by a now-defunct institution; pages slightly age-toned, one with pencilled underlining/emphasis. Bookseller Inventory # 14476
