First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on Tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library


William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616). English playwright, poet and actor.

Shakespeare’s First Folio is coming to the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck, July 6-31!

Only 233 copies of this first collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays exist. This is a RARE opportunity to see it.

To get the most out of the exhibit, we invite you to brush up on your Shakespeare. We have numerous resources in the BSC Library collection.  Check them out!

Note:  This image from the First Folio is from the Library’s Britannica ImageQuest database.
