First Folio

William Shakespeare, retrato aparecido en el First Folio.

First Folio, es el nombre atribuido a la primera publicación de la colección de obras teatrales de William Shakespeare. Contenía 36 obras y fue recopilado por John Heminges y Henry Condell, amigos del bardo, en 1623, siete años después de su muerte. El nombre original es Mr William Shakespeare's Comedies, Histories and Tragedies.

Se estima que se realizaron 1.000 copias. El censo más reciente (1995-2000) calcula aún la existencia de 228. Las ventas más recientes (por ejemplo en Oriel College Oxford, 2003) fijan su precio en torno a 3,5 millones de libras esterlinas.
