Subject: Halliday Correction?
For those who, like myself, make the occasional marginal correction:
F.E. Halliday's book *The Cult of Shakespeare* (New York: Thomas
Yoseloff, 1960/London publication was 1957) may have an error on page
139, where Halliday wrote,
>>>By 1841, Collier... was acknowledged as the leading authority on
>>>Shakespeare and the early drama, and in that year he founded the
The seal on the Shakespeare Society's publication of the play *The
Marriage of Wit and Wisdom* has this legend,
>>>The Shakespeare Society Founded 1840<<<
If Halliday is mistaken, it is a small blemish on an otherwise engaging
book. My intent is not to discredit Halliday, but to make sure the
matter on the record.
