Subject: Eric Sams
I was recently contacted by Richard Sams, the son of Eric Sams, as my
website on Shakespeare apocrypha had come to his notice.
Sadly, the reason for Richard's communication was that his father has
been seriously unwell for some time, and it has become increasingly
apparent that he will be unable to continue his Shakespearean work.
Richard is concerned that his father's library of Shakespeare-related
books should go to a good home. The library consists of a considerable
number of books, many annotated by Eric Sams; Richard is currently
compiling a list of the books.
Richard would like the collection to go to a single home, hopefully an
academic institution, or an individual doing similar work to Eric and in
general agreement with his ideas.
Expressions of interest either to me or preferably to Richard Sams at
