Is Shakespeare Dead? - 1st Edition/1st Printing
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1909. Original Cloth. First Edition; First Printing. 8vo. A most attractive First Edition, First State in Near Fine condition in the original plain Very Good dust jacket. Tight, bright copy with deckled edges and gold top stain in excellent condition, dust jacket with some small chipping and little tears along the top edge as well as original cutout for book title. Scarce with original dust jacket; Mark Twain's interest in the "Shakespeare question", was reignited in 1908 when he read The Shakespeare Problem Restated. Twain was intrigued by Greenwood's argument that, while there is no evidence that Shakespeare the actor had any familiarity with the law, the author of the plays must have been a lawyer... First State, without any inserted leaves pertaining to Greenwood's "Shakespeare Problem Restated"
