Committee for the Purchase of Shakespeare's Home

Broadside advertising the sale of Shakespeare's Birthplace. Stratford-upon-Avon, 2 August 1847

This rare broadside urges the public to donate to the fund to purchase Shakespeare’s birth place, which was scheduled to be sold at public auction in September 1847. The campaign was successful, and led to the formation of what is now the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
