Copy Comments:
The copy of the First Folio owned by Brandeis University was acquired by George F. Richardson of Lowell, Massachusetts, in 1894. On 25 February 1937 it was sold at Rains Galleries to Thomas & Eron (a New York bookseller) for $3,800, and in December 1961 Inman's Book Shop, NYC, sold it to Allan I. Bluestein, who then donated the Folio directly to Brandeis.
