There is a discussion of John Payne Collier in F. E. Halliday's "The Cult of
Shakespeare", Thomas Yoseloff, 1960.  There is probably a more recent source,
but this is a very enjoyable book.

Subject: 4.0385  Collier Query
Comment:        RE: SHK 4.0385  Collier Query
 
Regarding Collier: Schoenbaum, SHAKESPEARE'S LIVES, has about 20 pages on
the subject. He ends with one of the last things Collier ever wrote: "I am
bitterly sad and most sincerely grieved that in every way I am such a
despicable offender I am ashamed of almost every act of my life. [signed]
J. Payne Collier, Nearly blind."
 
Among the references Schoenbaum cites:
 
Collier, An Old Man's Diary, Forty Years Ago; for the Last Six Months of
1832 (London, 1871).
 
Collier, Autobiography.
 
Henry B. Wheatley, Notes on the Life of John Payne Collier; with a Complete
List of His Works, and an Account of Such Shakespeare Documents as Are
Believed to Be Spurious (London, 1884).
 
J.O. Halliwell[-Phillipps], Observations on the Shaksperian Forgeries at
Bridgewater House (London, 1853).
 
N.E.S.A. Hamilton, An Inquiry into the Genuineness of the Manuscript
Corrections in Mr. J. Payne Collier's Annotated Shakspere (London, 1860).
