Morris Special Collections Library focused on forgeries and hoaxes, including “John Payne Collier and the Perkins Folio,” “Thomas Chatterton and the Rowley Forgeries,” “The Fortsas Hoax,” “Thomas J. Wise and H. Buxton Forman: the Two Forgers,” “Frederic Prokosch and the Butterfly Books,” etc. Tipped in on page 85 is a fine copy of the University of Delaware’s Frank W.
