Library Discovers Shakespeare First Folio
on 27 November 2014
A Shakespeare First Folio was recently discovered at a small public library in St. Omer, France. With only 233 of them known to have survived, First Folios are among some of the rarest books in the world, and since each one is slightly different, their minute incongruities offer a valuable glimpse into the playwright’s mind. Keep an eye out for the newly discovered tome to be on display in St. Omer sometime next year.
