This book presents a selection of the writings of Sir Walter Wilson Greg (1875-1959), one of the leading bibliographers of the twentieth century and, along with R.B. McKerrow and A.W. Pollard, the founder of the New Bibliography that dominated twentieth-century textual studies. Students of the history of the book, of Shakespeare, of bibliography, and of library science will find this a valuable resource.
