The Applause First Folio of Shakespeare in Modern Type

The Applause First Folio of Shakespeare in Modern Type

Item # HU5662

In honor of the 400th anniversary of the Bard's death, the Folger Library is touring some of its precious First Folios, published in 1623, to all 50 states and Puerto Rico. (The First Folios were the earliest published editions of Shakespeare's collected works.) Facsimile editions are fascinating but can be very hard to read (oh, that 1623 typeface!). This book is a deep dive into all 36 plays in the First Folio, each printed in clear, legible type with its own introduction and extensive, expert annotations. Fascinating and essential for true Shakespeare fans and actors. Softcover, 1,184 pages.
