01/29/16 Shakespeare's First Folio

Shakespeare’s First Folio, first published in 1623, is one of the world’s most influential books — without it, we would not have 18 of his plays, and perhaps not know Shakespeare at all! Its value can be partially seen in dollars: in 2006, a copy sold at auction for $5.2 million. Only 244 copies exist. To mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the Folger Library in Washington, D.C., will be circulating 18 of its 82 copies to one site in each state.
