1st Edition. [1-5], 6-15pp. 12mo. Original printed self-wrappers. String bound and unopened. Paper at foot of spine has split (approximately 2"). Some sun fading and a few minor stains to edges of wrappers and first few pages, else a clean copy. very good An excellent, completely unsophisticated example of one of the infamous Thomas J. Wise (October 1859 - May 1937) forgeries. Wise was an accomplished book collector and bibliographer who completed bibliographies of several important 19th century authors. However, Wise was not content only to compile the extant, legitimate works of these authors and executed forgeries of "early" and "lost" pamphlets of Dickens, Browning, Swinburne, Eliot, Dante, and others. Wise, in association with fellow collector, dealer and bibliographer Harry Buxton Forman, "legitimized" these works in their bibliographies and sold them to collectors. The racket was exposed by John Carter and Graham Pollard in their 1934 book "An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets," which details the pamphlet offered here on pages 269-271. Ironically, a "forgery" of the forgery was issued; this copy is the "legitimate" forgery with the "L" of London above the final "R" of "Parker". An excellent example from on of the most notable and well-documented cases of biblioforgery on record. This copy sold by Sotheby's on 14 Feb 1972 with their original catalogue description and receipt from the sale. N° de ref. de la librería 138066
