The ‘Bodleian’ First Folio

The Bodleian Libraries hold two copies of the first folio edition of Mr. William Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies (1623).

These have not always been in the Library, though; hear about the tangled history of the ‘Bodleian’ copy from Emma Smith, here.

And see the fully-digitised copy, shelfmarked Arch. G c.7, here.

And read here about the conservation effort to secure this volume.
