THE PUBLICATION OF HIS PLAYS

standards in 1623 were far from strict, and Heming and Candell were actors rather than editors by profession, the texts are sometimes careless. The printing
and proofreading of the First Folio also left much to be desired, and some garbled passages have to be corrected and emended. The "good" quarto texts have to be taken into account in preparing a modern edition.
Because of the great popularity of Shakespeare through the centuries the First Folio has become a prized book, but it is not a very rare one, for it is estimated that 238 copies are extant. The Folger Shakespeare Library, in Washington, D.C., has seventy-nine copies of the First Folio, collected by the founder, Henry Clay Folger, who believed that a collation of as many texts as possible would reveal significant facts about the text of Shakespeare's plays. Dr. Charlton Hinman, using an ingenious machine of his own invention for mechanical collating, has made many discoveries that throw light on Shakespeare's text and on printing practices of the day.
The probability is that the First Folio of 1623 had an edition of between 1,000 and 1,250 copies. It is believed that it sold for £ 1, which made it an expensive book, for £ i in 1623 was equivalent to something between $40 and $50 in modern purchasing power.
During the seventeenth century, Shakespeare was sufficiently popular to warrant three later editions in folio size, the Second Folio of 1632, the Third Folio of 1663-1664, and the Fourth Folio of 1685. The Third Folio added six other plays ascribed to Shakespeare, but these are apocryphal.
