London: Trubner & Co., 1869, 1869. A WISE FORGERY. 1 vol., 8vo., 7-3/4" x 5", 16pp., without wrappers, uncut, unopened and unstitched as issued, housed in a manila paper folder, small chip to lower one inch of spine otherwise VERY GOOD. "Conclusion.- The grounds for our suspicions of this book have been outlined above, and our inspection of it's auction record and early provenance did nothing to allay them. Furthermore, it is printed in the same font of type as six of the proved forgeries and four other suspects, which, although not positive evidence, at least proves that it's typography is not consistent with the hypothesis that it is a member of the group. There is no single authenticating feature to set against this body of negative evidence; and the pamphlet must be set down as highly suspicious." - Carter and Pollard
