Calling all book lovers! Some of our most popular #FolgerFinds posts on Instagram this year featured beautiful bindings of Shakespeare’s collected works or early editions of Shakespeare plays that may have slightly different plot elements than the versions we’ve come to see as standard. One of these quartos, an early edition of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, was once owned by William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania.
Enjoy these Shakespeare books from the Folger collection.
