Here's a find that you all may find of interest:

I found this at a used bookstore last weekend. Here are the chapters:

I. Introductory
II. Oxford's Poems and Shakespeare
III. Shakespeare in the Lyrics of Lyly's Plays
IV. Oxford in "Venus" and "Lucrece"
V. Oxford in Chapman's Poems
VI. Oxford in the Shakesperean Sonnets

IX. Oxford in the Shakesperean Comedies...continued
X. Oxford in the Shakesperean Tragedies
XI. Oxford in the Shakesperean Tragedies...continued
XII. Oxford in the First Folio, and Summary

I'll bring the volume with me to the next Oberon meeting on May 15th.

If anyone has any background information on the author or this publication, please share it!
