An exceptional exploration of analytical bibliographic technique, as well as a thorough introduction to First Folio scholarship and to Henry Folger's collecting habits. Blayney's short essay offers an in-depth but highly readable analysis of the printing and publishing history of the First Folio from broken type to compositor assignments to original cost and presentation copies.
