The First Folio at the Harry Ransom Center, The University of Texas at Austin. Photo April 2016.

This is one of three copies at the Harry Ransom Center on the UT Austin campus, all of which were on display at the Shakespeare in Print and Performance exhibition to mark 400 years since the Bard’s death. They are currently on display again for the current exhibition The Long Lives of Very Old Books, which, in part, celebrates the 400th anniversary of the printing of the First Folio, which was entered into the Stationer’s Register in London on November 8, 1623.
