Richard Waugaman, MD, releases updated ebook

The erudite and accessible Richard Waugaman, M.D. has published a second and expanded edition of his first book, Newly Discovered Works by "William Shake-Speare": a.k.a. Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford, now available as a Kindle edition from Amazon.

Waugaman said:
Two new chapters add 30% more material, and I've made other revisions throughout. Both new chapters attribute translations from Latin into English to de Vere -- the Metamorphoses traditionally attributed to his uncle; and a 1570 translation of Johann Sturm's short work on rhetoric. 
In both of these new chapters, I present detailed philological evidence for de Vere's authorship, including unusual spellings; word coinages including "to coin" a word and words starting "un-"; and especially the highly Shakespearean use of hendiadys -- "the figure of twins," as de Vere called it in the Arte of English Poesie
