The Green Cockatrice. SHAKESPEARE OR NUGENT? J H OWEN'S COPY
MAHS [Meath Archaeological and Historical Society], Dublin, [1978]. 8vo., First Edition, with pedigree endpapers; original brown cloth, gilt back, a near fine copy in unclipped dustwrapper. THIS COPY WAS FORMERLY IN THE LIBRARY OF THE EMINENT NAVAL HISTORIAN J H OWEN. THE HALF-TITLE BEARS THE FOLLOWING SIGNED INSCRIPTION IN HIS NEAT SCHOLARLY HAND: 'GIVEN TO ME BY THE AUTHOR ELIZABETH HICKEY AT SKEYNE CASTLE, CO. MEATH. 8TH SEPT 1988'. With the publisher's prospectus loosely inserted. Written by Elizabeth Hickey under the pseudonym Basil Iske and published (in a very small print run) in 1978, this is the author's first full-length historical study. It records the life of William Nugent and makes an informed case for his possible authorship of the play and sonnets of Shakespeare.
