Gilchrist's Examination of the charges maintained by Malone, Chalmers, and others, of Ben Jonson's Enmity, etc.. to Shakespeare,. London, 1808 Chalmers, G. Another Account of the Incidents from which the title and a part of the story of Shakespeare's Tempest were derived, only 40 printed, all for presents, London, 1815 Dirrill's Remarks on Shakespeare's Tempest, containing an Examination of Mr. Malone, cut from a Review. All in 2 vols., 8vo, portrait of Malone inserted, calf extra, gilt edges,

London, 1797

Unique Collection of extremely rare publications. To Malone's Tract is added an Appendix, pp. 37-52, which being printed subsequently, is not found in all the copies. Only twenty copies of this appendix were printed. Autographs, and Malone's request in his own hand, that the contents of the first tract shall not be made public; and his memorandum, p. 36, that they were divulged by Archdeacon Nares. A copy of Gilchrist's Tract, says Mr. Knight (ictorial Shakespeare), "costs as much as a manuscript in the days before printing."
