The First Folio: Shakespeare For All Time?

This exhibit celebrates the Elizabethan Club’s rare book collections, largely assembled in the early 1910s by a young Yale alumnus who was inspired by his Shakespeare lectures. The exhibit constellates around the 1623 First Folio but tells a broader story, foregrounding early modern printers, 20th-century bibliographers, and booksellers today. We’ll see how the First Folio established Shakespeare’s iconic status.

Conversation with David A. Richards '67, '72 JD on his new book, I Give These Books: The History of Yale University Library, 1656-2022

“I Give These Books: The History of Yale University Library, 1656-2022”, presents a comprehensive history of one of America’s oldest university libraries from its founding through the present day. The library began with books brought over from Europe and England by Puritans seeking to found their own colony, and grew through donations from overseas donors, personal libraries of faculty members, and alumni endowments.
