Shakespeare First Folio Sells

The BBC is reporting that the Williams copy of Shakespeare's First Folio (which I discussed on Tuesday) has sold at Sotheby's for £2.8 million ($5.15 million). It was purchased by an anonymous London book dealer.

[Update: The dealer who bought the First Folio has been revealed as Simon Finch, who was presumably acting on behalf of a client.]
