Summary

Summary

The author, a descendant of the printer who produced Shakespeare's First Folio, examined the plays & poems of Shakespeare & found a sufficiently great preponderance of terms particular to printing & publishing as to lead him to believe that Shakespeare had actual working experience in a print shop, quite possibly that of the author's ancestor. The author's proposition is challenging & extremely well documented. Includes a master list of printing & publishing terms used by Shakespeare & the places & context in his works where they are used.
