SOTHEBY, WILKINSON HODGE.
A Collection Of Shakespeareana.

The catalogue of this important sale was profusely illustrated, and though it comprised no more than a dozen entries will always remain a valuable contribution to Shakespearean biography and literature. The articles sold comprised a folio document dated December 31st, 1598, bearing the signatures of Archbishop Whitgift, Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex and other noted personages of the day; a signed holograph letter of Lettice, Countess of Leicester, the "little western flower" of "A Midsummer Night's Dream"; autograph signatures of Philip Herbert, Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery, and Henry Wriothesley, Earl of Southampton, Shakespeare's great patron, a silver seal-top spoon bearing a fulllength figure of Shakespeare and the initials of himself and Anne Hathaway, a casket made from the wood of the mulberry tree, a carved portrait of Shakespeare from the same wood, and the "unknown portrait" reproduced and described in Walford's "Antiquarian" for October, 1885. Reference must be made to the catalogue for a descriptive account of these articles. The following books were, however, included in the catalogue, and sold for the sums named :—

1329 Mottley (John). List of all the Dramatic Authors, with some

account of their lives and of all the Dramatic Pieces ever published in the English language to the year 1747—also Scanderberg, or Love and Liberty, a Tragedy, by Thomas Whincop, portraits, original calf, 1847, 8vo. (10)

Barton, £42

[This belonged to Richard Farmer, the Shakespearean commentator, and was evidently prepared by him for a revised edition, which, however, was never published. Nearly all the 200 pages were covered with additions and corrections in his autograph. In the division devoted to Shakespeare, the author has noted against each play his opinion of the date of its composition, as well as much other information concerning the circumstances surrounding it, the characters, etc.—El).]

1330 Shakespeare (W.) Dramatic Works, to which are added his

Miscellaneous Poems, portrait, contemporary calf, 1821, 8vo. (9) Pearson, £\ I I OS.

[On the front cover of this volume is inlaid a piece of the wood of the celebrated mulberry tree, surrounded by a gold frame, bearing the following inscription, "Part of the mulberry tree planted by Wm. Shakespeare." The fly-leaf bears the following inscription: "The insertion in the binding is from a portion of the tree formerly in the possession of the widow of the celebrated David Garrick, who presented the same to George IV., and for whom sundry articles were made by Rundell and Bridge, and small pieces of which were converted into loving mementoes by the several recipients.—A. Evors."—Catalogue.] 48 lines, without marks, painted ornamental capitals in blue and red, half bound (Afogunt., P. Schoeffer, 1472), folio (155) ' Ridler, £4

[Capell's edition. This copy came from the libraries of Thomas Gray, Edmund Malone and Richard Heber. Gray has added MS. annotations to several of the plays and to Capell's introduction. Malone had written a list of the plays on the fly leaf (3^ pages) and annotated several of them. The chief feature here consisted, of course, in the manuscript additions by Thomas Gray, the poet.—Ed.]

1332 Shakespeare (W.) Mr. William Shakespeare's Comedies,

Histories and Tragedies, published according to the true original copies, unto which is added Seven Plays, never before printed in folio . . . the fourth edition, London, printed for H. Herringman, and are to be sold by Joseph Knight and Francis Saunders at the Anchor, in the Lower Walk of the New Exchange, 1685, folio (12) Marshall, £215 [A large copy, measuring 14% inches by <)% inches, having a few uncut leaves. Bound in old diced calf at the end of the eighteenth century. This copy was described in the catalogue as belonging to a totally unknown issue, and probably unique. The imprint hitherto recorded reads: "London, printed for H. Herringman, E. Brewster and R. Bentley, at the Anchor in the New Exchange, the Crane in St. Paul's Churchyard and in Russell Street, Covent Garden." The errors in pagination in this copy did not follow the list given in the British Museum Catalogue, nor that given by Lowndes. The ornament above the imprint is different, and the whole title-page is evidently re-set.— ED.]
