The history of Jane Shore. [London?: , after 1821]. 12mo (16.8 cm, 6.65"). 24 pp. $125.00
An uncommon, anonymously published version of the ever-popular tragic story of the abandoned mistress of King Edward IV. This chapbook — while an inexpensive production showing signs of sloppy presswork — opens with a => page-filling woodcut depiction of Jane in her penitence, walking the streets in a shift and bearing a lit taper aloft, and closes with the lament traditionally attributed to Jane as well as the poem "The Broken Heart" (first published in 1821).
