Dr José Pérez Díez presents a free online talk about the recently acquired Beaumont and Fletcher Folio.
The Brotherton Library has acquired King Charles II’s copy of the 1647 folio Comedies and Tragedies by Beaumont and Fletcher.
This iconic book was the third great English collection of plays published in folio after the publication of Ben Jonson’s Works in 1616 and Shakespeare’s First Folio in 1623.
Dr José Pérez Díez will introduce this landmark book, which was published during the English Civil War – just two years before the execution of Charles I.
