Henry and Emily Folger spent almost 50 years assembling the world’s finest and largest collection of Shakespeare editions. This talk, by their biographer Stephen Grant, looks at the role played by Emily in the creation of this remarkable collection-including 82 First Folios-and the library that bears their name. Visitors can also see a display of a selection of the University Library’s thousands of Shakespeare editions, including our own iconic 1623 First Folio.
