In late November 1623, Edward Blount finally took delivery at his bookshop at the sign of the Black Bear near St Paul’s of a book that had been long in the making. Master William Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies was the first collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays, appearing some seven years after their author’s death in 1616. Its 950 folio pages included thirty-six plays, half of which had not previously been printed. Emma Smith is Professor of Shakespeare Studies at Oxford and the author of The Making of Shakespeare’s First Folio.  ‘Chaired by Peter Florence’ .
