AN ENQUIRY INTO THE NATURE OF CERTAIN NINETEENTH CENTURY ...
by Carter, John and Graham Pollard
First edition. A classic piece of literary detective work in which the authors expose Thomas J. Wise as a forger by their work in type specimens, paper and study of the text of various 19th century pamphlets. A landmark book in the history of literary forgery. This copy has been inscribed by both authors on the free endpaper. Very rare to find a copy signed by both authors. Carter has written in his typical red ink "Unread, I notice, but I appreciate the goodwill. John Carter, 7 dec 70" and Pollard has added in blue ink beneath Carter's inscription "Signature authenicated by Graham Pollard, 29 Nov. 1973." With the bookplate of the noted collector, Abel Berland. Jacket rubbed along spine and hinges but rather well preserved.
