Detailed Description
**Note: Please order this item from our new website**





The Folger Library owns more than a third of the surviving copies of the first collected edition of Shakespeare, printed in 1623. Peter Blayney, a noted expert on the early book trade, draws on this unrivaled collection to tell several stories: how the book was printed and sold; how copies were treated and mistreated by early owners; how it was replaced by an "improved" edition in the 1660s but became a highly prized collector's item a century later; how and why Henry Folger eventually acquired over eighty copies. Published in conjunction with an exhibition, this "catalog" also stands alone as the unusually readable history of a truly remarkable book. Blayney, Peter, 1991. ISBN: 0-9629254-3-8. Paper, 46 pages, 80 illustrations. Limited edition.
