GREAT OXFORD BOX SET I-III – Limited Edition
The de Vere Society is proud to announce the arrival of Great Oxford I-III, a beautiful boxed-set of three hardback volumes celebrating over twenty years of outstanding essays, articles and reviews by the greatest Oxfordian researchers of the last twenty years.
Oxfordian essays selected & edited by Richard Malim, Eddi Jolly & Kevin Gilvary – Limited Edition only 300 numbered sets available.

The essays in this book are reprinted as they first appeared in 2004 on the four-hundredth anniversary of Edward de Vere’s death. Carefully chosen from the pages of the de Vere Society Newsletter they were regarded then as paragon examples of the cutting edge of Oxfordian research and it is remarkable, given the exponential volume of work that has been published since that year, how well they have stood the test of time.

A century ago an English teacher named John Thomas Looney published a book entitled ‘Shakespeare’ Identified in Edward de Vere, Seventeenth Earl of Oxford. Many years of teaching and of rigorous and methodical investigations into Elizabethan literature had led him to doubt the traditional attribution of the authorship of the most famous plays in the world and to his identification of the Earl of Oxford.
