About this Item: Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston and New York: 1909., 1909. Hardcover. 1st Edition. pp. xii, 631. Illustrated with facsimiles. Title page decorated with Riverside Press devise. Inked ownership of A. L. Coyant, 1911 and Charles Larkin, 1935. Rear hinge cracked. Top edge gold. 4to. Original full purple cloth binding, lettered in gold. Hardbound. First edition. Nice copy of this classic in the Shakespeare/Bacon controversy. The Bacon-Shakespeare authorship controversy, consists of the view that Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626) wrote the plays commonly attributed to Shakespeare. It actively flourished with scholars and amateurs weighing in on one side or another from around 1880 to 1930. The battle was fought not only in Great Britain but also in America (where the idea originated) and in Germany. Prominent later claimants include Christopher Marlowe; Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford; and William Stanley, 6th Earl of Derby.) The Francis Bacon Society continues to promulgate the Baconian theory today. We agree with Twain, who supposedly said during the height of the controversy: "Shakespeare was written by Shakespeare - or somebody with his name." SHAKESPEARE BOX 2. Seller Inventory # 005BARD

About this Item: Privately printed, Montreal, 1945. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. [72pp deckled mould-made stock]: [xiv], 58 (last leaf blank); cloth-backed marble boards, with spine label; 235 x 163 x 11 mm. One of 500 copies printed at the Southam Press, May 1945; designed by Bruce Rogers. Inscribed ffe: "To my dear Niece, Isabel, With affectionate regards and all good wishes W.T.White Nov 13, 1945." The author, Sir William Thomas White GCMG, was Minister of Finance during the First World War (1917¿9) & acting Prime Minister during Sir Robert Borden's absence at the Paris Peace Conference (January through May 1919). It was he who introduced the 'temporary' income tax in 1917 to finance Canada's support, a wartime measure which, despite his determination to see it discontinued after the cessation, the government in its 'wisdom' chose to perpetuate . . . . One of only 125 members in the inner circle of the Order of Michael & George, it should further be noted that he was also one of the two commissioners (of five) in the Royal Commission on Banking & Currency (1933) who opposed the creation of the Bank of Canada. A spot of foxing on ffe; light wear at lower tips. While much of the edition was inscribed, personal inscriptions remain uncommon. Seller Inventory # 003796
