The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 15.0186 Monday, 26 January 2004

Subject: Shakespeare's Montaigne
In the last chapter of Baldwin's massive Shakespere's smalle Latine and
lesse Greeke (1944), in a footnote on, as I recall, p 666 (yes really),
Baldwin says that a copy of Montaigne in the British Library has a
strong claim to be Shakespeare's copy. Does anyone know what the status
is of this claim, which I've not seen repeated elsewhere?
