“Gentle breath of yours my sails/ Must fill, or else my project fails”: Tales of the Bodleian First Folio

In 1623, the First Folio of Shakespeare’s plays was collaboratively published by a consortium of printers and fellow actors of the playwright, seven years after his death. A copy of the book arrived at Oxford’s Bodleian Library that same year. It was deacquisitioned some time after the Third Folio’s publication in 1663/4. Brought back to the Library by chance in 1905, a public funding campaign assured its permanent return to the Bodleian.

Due to its fragility, it has been little studied since. The goal of the book’s second public campaign, Sprint for Shakespeare, was to create a “digital avatar”2 which revealed the materiality of the book, made it accessible to readers primarily interested in the contents, and enabled reuse. A secondary aim of the campaign was to test the viability of crowdfunding digitization and online publication of rare books in the Bodleian Libraries’ Special Collections, with a view to engaging the public with texts beyond the literary canon.

This talk tells some the book’s curious stories, from its two public campaigns (1906 and 2012), through its conservation, digitization, and current publication in searchable text form, to the apple pip languishing in the pages of Henry VI Part 2.
The remarkable story of perhaps the most-read copy of one of the world’s most iconic books is a window on literary, social, and physical book history, and demonstrates some affordances of the digital for fans of Shakespeare, both scholarly and general.

This project was a collaboration across the Bodleian, the University of Oxford’s e-Research Centre and IT Services, as well as faculty members from several universities. The resource was influenced by other digital facsimiles of early printed Shakespeare, including some of the team’s previous work on the Shakespeare Quartos Archive. Work on the Bodleian First Folio continues.
