This essay examines the relationship between two 'fake' editions of Shakespeare that appeared in the mid-nineteenth century: the so-called 'Perkins Folio', whose annotations were forged by the scholar J.P. Collier, and the 'Grimaldi Shakspeare', a satiric attack upon the spurious authenticity and authority of the Perkins Folio.
