Walter Scott Publishing co 1885?

Post by victor508 » Fri Oct 15, 2010 10:33 pm

Hi All,
I wonder if anyone can help , i am not sure if it is only law and property books you give advice on, if it is sorry for taking your time up.

My daughter bought a book from a car boot sale, it was called Poems , sonnets and songs by William Shakespeare. Edited with a critical introduction by William Sharpe .Published 1885 by Walter Scott Publishing co.

We have googled Walter Scott and he was a builder , he built Newcastle Station along with others ,later in life he went into publishing.

my daughter is convinced this book was published in 1885 , i said there may be later editions of it , if so would that still state 1885.

Any views on this or where to read up on this book and the publisher.

Also anyone ever heard of William Sharpe.

Thanks,

Victor.
