First Folio Found

This valuable, if begrimed, Shakespeare First Folio published in 1623 has been discovered by Remy Cordonnier, a French librarian in Saint-Omer, near Calais, while he was selecting books for an exhibition on historic links between the local region and England. Only about 230 copies of the First Folio were published. This find brings the number up to 233. On Saturday the book was authenticated by Eric Rasmussen, a First Folio expert from the University of Nevada, USA. This is the first new find in a decade (CLICK).
