About the book:

When there have been opportunites for profit from deception, there have always been people ready to engage in sharp practice and ready to perpetuate fakes and frauds. These essays throw light on some of the more shadowy areas of book trade history, revealing tricksters, villains -- even murderers -- who have practiced deception in the written and printed word, from 12th century to very recent times. "Fakes & Frauds" includes chapters on: "The Forgery of Printed Documents" by Nicolas Barker, "Forged Handwriting" by Tom Davis, and "Paper Pirates" by Michael Harris. This book also covers aspects of all the great forgers -- Wise, Prokosch, Hofmann and others. Co-published with St. Paul's Bibliographies."
