A series of five talks on some instances of learned invention and forgery 4 — Collier's Shakespeare Forgeries by John Crow
Lecturer in English in the University of London
(King's College)
John Payne Collier was one of the best qualified of the nineteenth-century editors who made rare texts available to the public, and many of his emendations to the text of Shakespeare were of great ingenuity and were received into subsequent editions. Unfortunately his transcripts of manuscripts are often big with spurious matter, and he preferred to give his Shakespeare emendations the specious authority of an ' Old Corrector,' after writing them himself in the margin of a copy of the Second Folio in a spurious seventeenth-century hand.
