Re: William Henry Ireland forgeries
I am producing a film for Miramax Films ("Shakespeare in Love")
concerning the story of William Henry Ireland and his Shakespeare
forgeries in the late1700s and I would appreciate any guidance to those
people you may know of that have original material in their private
In particular, I am looking for a copy of his forged play "Vortigern".
Any information relating to this project is of interest and I would
appreciate any relevant source material.
Thank you for your assistance.
