The Globe Folios


A beautifully bound reproduction from Shakespeare's First Folio.

The First Folio is the term applied by modern scholars to the first published collection of Shakespeare's plays as Mr. William Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories & Tragedies. Printed in folio format and containing 36 plays, it was first published in 1623.

Although eighteen of Shakespeare's plays had been published in quarto prior to 1623, the First Folio is the only reliable text for about twenty of the plays.
