Overview

The House of Forgery in Eighteenth-Century Britain

The book surveys the crime and its mythology, placing well-known cases such as that of Dr.William Dodd within the pattern of 400 prosecutions from the period 1715-1780. In parallel, accounts of some major instances of literary forgery are rooted in a more pervasive culture in which "forgery" was discovered in many developing areas of literary practice: scholarly editing, historiography and antiquarianism.
