Washington: W.H. Lowdermilk, 1886. First Edition. Small Octavo. Item #029032

viii, 241 pages. Often confusing because J.H. Siddons is the name of J.H. Stocqueler claiming he was the illegitimate son of Mrs. Siddons the actress. He was considered one of the most serious American writers on Shakespeare. The work has many fascinating entries including foreign words in Shakespeare. It also has a very pious description of Shakespeare's use of the word Christianity. This volume was issued in a small print run and dedicated to Henry Irving. Bound in brown cloth, boards ruled in gilt, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, decorative endpapers, rear hinge is cracked through endpapers.
