Administrative / Biographical History
First published in 1970, Burgess's richly illustrated speculative biography follows Shakespeare from his beginnings in Stratford to his success in the London theatre and, eventually, to his affluent semi-retirement.
The biography was initially drafted under the title "Will's World: The Life and Times of Gulielmus Shaksper".
Records described as being in a fair or poor condition are available to researchers in consultation with the Archivist.
