[In the fifth leaf of the Table on the outside margin, written longitudinally, is the signature "Wm. Shakespere." This volume was bought amongst others in an auction in 1852 by the late C. W. Hird, Esq., of Portland Chambers, London, and has been submitted to various experts, and compared with the four or five hitherto known and recognised signatures of Shakespeare. While none of them give an authoritative decision, the consensus of opinion goes to show that this signature is not an Ireland forgery, but was probably written soon after the book was published. The book has on the fly-leaf two signatures of "Thomas Bragge," a well-known Stratford-on-Avon family contemporary with Shakespeare. It was left by will of the late owner to his grandson, the present possessor.
