About meMajor Edward Dale (1620-1695), an early settler of Lancaster County, Virginia. A Royalist, he emigrated to Virginia during the English Civil War, and held various local offices until the time of his death. He married Diana Skipwith; their daughter Katherine was the wife of Thomas Carter.

About my libraryDocumented in a list of books owned by Dale, drawn up by Thomas and Edward Carter on 16 February 1695 and written on a blank leaf in a copy of Holyday's Juvenal (1673) in the collections of the Folger Shakespeare Library. Dale's copy of Shakespeare's Second Folio may be the earliest recorded copy of Shakespeare in America.
