Contested Will: Who Wrote Shakespeare? - James ShapiroFaber & Faber, 2010, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.
Illustrated with black and white photographs. For two hundred years after Shakespeare's death, no one thought to argue that somebody else had written his plays. Since then dozens of rival candidates - including Sir Francis Bacon and the Earl of Oxford - have been proposed as their true author. “Contested Will” unravels the mystery of when and why so many people began to question whether Shakespeare wrote the plays (among them such leading writers and artists as Sigmund Freud, Henry James, Mark Twain, Helen Keller, Orson Welles, and Sir Derek Jacobi).
