Talking Smack About the First Folio???


From the Louisville Courier-Journal, September 16, 1893


The New York Shakespeare Society has begun to reprint in its Bankside edition the archaic texts of the seventeen plays first printed in the Heminges and Condell Folio of 1623. The first of these plays, “The Tempest,” will leave the press in a few days. Of these new volumes but 500 copies are printed, as before, hand numbered to correspond with the 500 sets of the prior twenty volumes, with which they are, of course, uniform in style, size, price, etc.
