Maybe so, but the Library of Congress Name Heading is:

Schoenbaum, S. (Samuel), 1927-

My biggest problem with Wood's book is that it gives short shrift to
Shakespeare's last years. There's nothing about the enclosure
controversy, for example -- which is surprising, because it seems made
to order for Wood's approach. Apart from that, I think it does an
outstanding job doing the thing that Gary Taylor singles out: bringing
alive the places associated with Shakespeare. That by itself is no mean
feat.
