Event Horizon

The Most Expensive Book in the World

Wednesday, Jan 27: What Is the First Folio Anyway, and Why Should We Care?

Martin Droeshout - Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Yale University

One city, holy faith or Santa Fe,
In fair New Mexico, where we begin;
From ancient writings break new theater,
Where the fine first folio of the Bard
Makes civil minds broad and full of wonder;
From the St. Francis Auditorium,
A papery book of words makes new life.
