rare Shakespeare folio found

A First Folio of Shakespeare's works, one of 233 remaining copies of 800, was identified by an expert. The title page and a few others were missing so it had been previously incorrectly identified. It is not in the best shape, but is mostly intact, and is rare and valuable. It is one of 2 known Shakespeare First Folios in France. It will be featured in an exhibit at the library in Saint-Omer, which also has a Gutenberg Bible. Read more about it and see some photos  at http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-30206476
