The digital facsimile was made possible thanks to the generosity of the supporters of the Sprint for Shakespeare campaign. This second phase of the First Folio project is publishing a digital edition of the book.
We remain very grateful to all the donors to Sprint for Shakespeare, whether named or anonymous. Those who wished to be recognized are listed alphabetically below, with dedications by request.
The second phase of the Bodleian First Folio project was made possible by a lead gift from Dr Geoffrey Eibl-Kaye and generous support from the Sallie Dickson Memorial Fund/Dallas Shakespeare Club, Mr James Barber, and a private individual. The Bodleian Libraries are very grateful for this additional support, which brings new features to the digitized First Folio, enabling more efficient and intuitive use for all with an interest in Shakespeare, early modern drama, theatre and book history.
