Reprint. Originally published in 1860. Hamilton, Assistant Keeper of Manuscripts of the British Museum, was the first scholar to come forward and declare the Perkins Folio a fraud. His letter in the July 2, 1859, issue of "The Times" was the start of the unravelling of Collier's forgery and long-disguised deception. This book fleshed out Hamilton's stand on the controversy. Very fine.
