London Bernard Quaritch Ltd.: 1973.

In 1972 the distinguished English bookselling firm of Bernard Quaritch acquired a "quantity of books and pamphlets" from the estate of the late Maurice Buxton Forman, son of Harry Buxton Forman, friend of T.J. Wise... As Graham Pollard, Super-Literary-Sleuth and co-author of "An Inquiry Into Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets" points out in the introduction to this catalog, the contents described here shed new light on the role that Harry Buxton Forman played in the infamous "Wise Forgeries" of 19th century literary pamphlets.
