This Solemn Mockery:
The Art of Literary Forgery

John Whitehead.

Here we study the careers of more than twenty literary forgers, from the days of Ancient Assyria to the twentieth century. Some forgers, among them Thomas Chatterton, James MacPherson, and William Ireland who produced a "lost" Shakespeare play, possessed sufficient talent to justify a legitimate career in the literary world. Others were superlative confidence tricksters. Thomas J White was the most famous forger - his discovery & investigation reads like a modern detective story.
