Octavo format, with pictorial covers. xiv + 318 pp. From the publisher's blurb, "The Two Forgers describes the lives and career of two very different men who came together in one of the greatest frauds in the history of book collecting. Harry Buxton Forman worked in the late Victorian era in the Post Office, rising to be Comptroller of Packet services. In his spare time he was a serious literary scholar who edited Keats and Shelley. Thomas James Wise was a commodity dealer in a firm which specialized in essential oils. He was also one of the most influential book collectors of his generation, and President of the Bibliographical Society. This fascinating book describes how Wise and Forman joined forces in a conspiracy to forge a wide range of first editions of Victorian authors. The Two Forgers also contains an account of the sensational unmasking of the plot in 1934. It re-tells a remarkable passage of literary history and re-interprets it in the light of recent research. Illustrated. Name and address on front endpaper, else fine. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
