The Quiz: The rare “First Folio” is a collection of 36 plays by whom?

William Shakespeare
Lorraine Hansberry
Arthur Miller
Henrik Ibsen

In 1623, seven years after William Shakespeare’s death, his friends and supporters published a collection of 36 of his plays, titled “William Shakespeare’s Comedies Histories and Tragedies,” otherwise known as the “First Folio.” Only 235 copies of the collection are known to have survived since they were first printed nearly 400 years ago, making them among the rarest and most valuable books around. Of the folio’s 36 plays, 18 had never been published before, including “Macbeth,” “Julius Caesar,” and “The Taming of the Shrew,” all of which may have been lost forever were it not for this work.

The correct answer to this quiz is William Shakespeare.
