The “First Folio” refers to a 1623 publication in which 18 of Shakespeare’s plays were printed for the first time. According to Folger Shakespeare Library, about 235 of the 750 copies of the First Folio remain today. The Folger collection is home to 82 of these copies, and this year the First Folio will visit all 50 states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico. The First Folio will be on view at the Chazen Museum of Art in Madison from Nov. 3 through Dec. 11.
