First edition. Ratchford's book proved beyond doubt the guilt of Thomas J. Wise as a literary forger and implicated the distinguished men of letters, H. Buxton Forman and Sir Edmund Gosse and thus becomes a necessary supplement to Carter and Pollard's An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth-Century Pamphlets. Jacket chipped with pieces missing along edges and is price clipped.
