    Thomas Bowdler, LRCP, FRSwas an English physician and philanthropist, best known for publishing The Family Shakspeare, an expurgated edition of William Shakespeare's work, edited by his sister Henrietta Maria Bowdler, intended to be more appropriate for 19th century women and children than the original. Although early editions of the work were published with the spelling "Shakspeare", after Bowdler's death, later editionsadopted the spelling "Shakespeare", reflecting changes in the standard spelling of Shakespeare's name...
