Shakespeare's Bookshelf: New Additions to the Paul Chrzanowski Collection

Wednesday, April 23

New additions to the Paul Chrzanowski Collection will be on view during this special event, which also marks the 450th anniversary of William Shakespeare's birth.

The largest gift ever made to the Clark Library, the Chrzanowski Collection contains books known or thought to have been read by Shakespeare as well as two Shakespeare folios, a quarto edition Henry the Sixth, and other rare books dating from 1479 to 1731. It also includes the first complete Caxton publication to enter any UC collection, his Cordyal of the Four Last Thinges of 1479. Admission is free, but registration is required by April 16.
