Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 144007335X, Paperback)

The following computer-generated description may contain errors and does not represent the quality of the book.

This volume was never intended to be more than an appeal for the re-examination of Mr. Donnellys claim to the discovery of a secret cipher in the plays known as Shakespeares, and in its present form it can only be regarded as a collection of rough notes and jottings on this subject, hurried into print by circimistances connected with the theft of a portion of my manuscript. The indulgence of the few students who may consult these pages is therefore entreated for the errors of style and punctuation, and for the faulty arrangement of material which involves so much repetition. I am not without hope, however, that the labour of scanning the following pages will be repaid by the acquisition of manj facts bearing on the Bacon-Shakespeare controversy, which it has cost me years of toilsome research to accumulate. W.F. C.WiGSTON.
