Gerald Massey 100 years on

Gerald Massey lived a fascinating life, as a poet and Shakespeare scholar, developer of evolutionary theory and, of course, Chartist.
Massey died one hundred years ago next month, and to mark his centenary, Ian Petticrew and David Shaw, whose devotion to the cause of Minor Victorian Poets is simply magnificent, have produced a booklet dealing with his life and contributions to the various worlds in which he moved.
I am grateful to both Ian and David, long-time friends of Chartist Ancestors, for allowing me to have a copy of the booklet on the site so that it can be downloaded by anyone who would like to read it. Just click on the title below and the booklet will open in PDF format.
