Subject: RE: BS: Shakespeare 'first folio' for sale
The folio is being sold by the trustees of Dr. Williams Library, in order to preserve the library and its research collection. Dr. Williams Library was established in the early 18th c., and is known for its research library on English Protestant dissent.
Only one other copy of this quality remains in private hands.
