Collecting Shakespeare:

The Henry & Emily Folger Story

By Stephen H. Grant

 

For the authors' speaking schedule around the country, visit: http://www.stephenhgrant.com/

For reviews, see Johns Hopkins University Press:

As noted by Michael Dirda in his Washington Post review, "Stephen H. Grant provides not just a biography of the 'onlie begetters' of this astonishing library, but also an account of the worlds in which the Folgers lived. The result is a superlative book, one that ranges from Amherst College in the 19th century to the gilded age of Standard Oil to the glory days of high-end book collecting."
