Shakespeare Folio to be Sold

The complete first folio of the playwright's work had a print run of approximately 750 in 1623.
However, only a third of these survive and most of them are incomplete.
The book is being sold by Dr Williams's Theological Library in London, which hopes the proceeds - expected to be more than £3m - will secure its future
(from BBC News). 3 million British pounds is about 5.2 million U.S. dollars right now. A facsimile of the First Folio can be had for about 80 U.S. dollars. You can read Shakespeare's complete plays online for free.
