WARBURTON'S SHAKESPEAR.'

"

burton's 'Shakespear.' I was staying in Southport, and while there strolled one day into a shop of the kind above mentioned, to which I had been frequently before. This day, however, when I entered, the bookseller was talking to a gentleman at the back of the shop, and I suddenly heard the following conversation: "I have got a Shakespear' here, sir, with notes by Bishop Warburton,' " Oh, indeed; let me look at it." The gentleman handled a volume, and then remarked, "Why, it's all written over; I'd rather have a clean copy when I do get one." So back went the book on the shelf, and out of the shop went the customer. I went quietly to the bookseller, and asked for the 'Shakespear' he had just been showing. He replied by putting a volume into my hand. Having carefully compared the writing of the notes with some lithographed writing of Warburton in a biography of his which I happened to have seen in the shop, I purchased the eight volumes. On their arrival at our house, I found further warranty for their authenticity in the following notes, which appear on the first page of vol. i.

Note 1, in Bishop Warburton's own handwriting :

"Of all the Idiots (and they are not a few) who have scribbled upon Shakespear, and against his Editor, the most consummate, sure, is one Capel, who has wasted above thirty years of life in hunting after the text of Shakespear; and has at last given it so ridiculously interpolated: that we are (now at a loss to distinguish his nonsense from the nonsense of the first blundering Printers, W."

Note 2, in the handwriting of Eleanor Newton:

"This copy of Warburton's Shakespeare was given to Eleanor Newton by the widow of the revd Martin Stafford Smith whose first wife was Bp. Warburton's widow."

The volumes have the book-plate of Martin Stafford Smith.

The Tempest.

GLOBE EDITION.
I. i. 11. Play the men.

As some sort of an introduction to the notes which appear below and as a voucher for the authenticity of the same to the readers of this paper, I feel that it is incumbent on me to state shortly how this copy of Warburton's 'Shakespear' came into my possession. In order that I may carry out this intention, I must refer to my grandfather, the late William Bennet, of Chapel-en-leFrith, co. Derby, who, first as a novelist, writing, at the beginning of this century, under the nomde-plume of "Lee Gibbons," "and then as a scholar and antiquary, assisting Mr. Llewellynn the fire. Jewitt as a frequent contributor to the Reliquary, won for himself a place as a man of letters. Having inherited in some measure his passion for antiquities of all sorts (more especially books), I have at all times taken much interest in old bookshops; and it was in such a shop, and under the following circumstances, that came upon War

Mr. Bennet's first work, The Cavalier,' was published in 1821, attracted much attention, and commanded a rapid sale. Later on appeared 'Malpas,' Owain Goch,' and The King of the Peak,' with regard to the last of which Sir Walter Scott, in a preface to his 'Peveril of the Peak,' said that if he had known that the ground had been preoccupied by a writer of so much talent, he would not have written Peveril of the Peak' at all,
