Shakspere [Sic]

Friday 13th… one of those days when I didn’t get much chance to work on the backlog or upload anything to Alamy.  So instead here is a photograph I took today of a book.  In case you are wondering yes there is a good reason for photographing this book.  See tomorrows POTD for the explanation.

However what I want to know is who is “Leopold Shakspere” and why do so many of his plays have the same titles as William Shakespeare’s plays.
