Shakespeare Folio Found

While we should likely finish November with something about novels…the business of Novel Writing November, this news trumps all: a librarian in Saint-Omer France has discovered a First Folio Shakespeare.  It was out on the shelves!  It is now, according to news reports, in a much safer spot and being readied for digitization.  A First Folio wandering like a doe in the forest, it gives reason to give thanks.

Thinking along similar Shakespeare lines the Folger Shakespeare Libraries has a digital guide to the First Folios available (Folger Shakespeare Library owns a significant portion of the extant First Folios).  Slices of the SLU Libraries holdings on Shakespeare were presented in Odyssey Online, the once and future blog of the SLU Libraries, here, here, and here.
