The first post when starting this blog was a collection of Shakespeare apocrypha though it hasn't been the only such work.  Just a couple of years ago Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen released a volume of "collaborative plays" that's essentially the same thing.  In fact several of those plays appear in this 1800 book.  As always, one point of interest is the inclusion of certain works - in this case Titus Andronicus and Pericles, Prince of Tyre - that are now accepted as Shakespeare's as well as Two Noble Kinsmen which has teetered in and out (but currently seems to be in).
