[blocks in formation]

"The author has laid the student of Shakspearian literature under deep "obligations. That literature is now of itself an important and distinctive "branch of study. Innumerable essays, criticisms, commentaries, expositions, "and lectures upon Shakespeare have been published in England, Germany "and France. Their titles, authors' names, and dates of appearance have "been collected together by Mr. Thimm, and arranged in alphabetical order. "Prefixed to each list is an historical account of the progress of Shakspea"rian criticism in the three countries, which instructively shows the growth "of the appreciation of the exhaustless dramas. The book is both valuable "as a reference, and as a study of the advance in the English and Conti"nental estimation of Shakspeare.. It is the fullest compilation of the kind "we have; Bohn's edition of Lowndes has hitherto been the most complete "record on the subject; but to the works, there enumerated Mr. Thimm has "added the titles of at least one hundred and seventy more books in the "English, and nearly three hundred in the German and French Department. "Mr. Thimm's is therefore the most perfect collection of Shakspeariana."

It has been his "endeavour to place before the lovers of the great dramatistes" an elaborate Catalogue of what the Times calls, the "Shakspeare Library" and he has succeeded in accomplishing his object. Shrewsbury Observer. 1865.

From the Preface.

The first "Shakspeariana" by Wilson, published in 1827 was too imperfect to be of much use.

Mr. Halliwell's, which appeared in 1841, is very useful for the varions early editions of Shakspeare's works; but for so great a student of the dramatist and his history, his collection of Commentaries and essays (which only extends to 233 numbers) is singularly imperfect. Sillig's Shakspeare Literatur bis Mitte 1854 was decidedly the most perfect production of its kind, which had hitherto seen the light.

Nevertheless I could not relinquish the idea of publishing my own Collectanea; for notonly were my materials and the labour expended upon them considerable (the subject has occupied me for more than 12 years) but it was moreover a part of my plan to classify the productions of England, France and Germany, in a manner as yet unattempted. Halliwell had only 26 additions to Wilson, I had over 600 more than Sillig, enough in themselves to constitute quite a new work. The latest addition to Shakspearian literature has appeared in the new edition of "Lowndes-Manuel" by Mr. Henry Bohn, and constitutes a "Shakspeariana" of which I cannot but speak in the very highest terms. And yet it will be found, on comparison, that I have at least 120 additional references in the English, and nearly 300 in the German and French departments.

"Southey said, when Isaac Reed's contribution appeared, Comments "upon Shakespeare keep pace with the National Debt: yet I should like to "see his book and would buy it, if I could. Of course; and a costly store "is obtained by such continual additions” ́ ́.

The complete Catalogue, as far as it is possible for a Bibliographer to give, of this Shakespeare "Library" it has been my endeavour to place before the lovers of the great dramatist.
