Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Broadside, 8vo; green decorative border, text printed in red and black; fine. Prospectus begins with "The stupid idea that Bacon wrote Shakespeare has discouraged critical challenge of the latter's authorship of the plays. The only full-fledged exposition of dissent has been that of veteran bookman Walter Hart Blumenthal"; and ends with "The question of authentication cannot be ended by cultist derision of probing doubt of a dissenter such as Blumenthal." Integral order form on Broadside verso.


Arrangement follows the order of the original Excel inventory.
