The First Folio - level 2
The First Folio is a book with 36 plays by William Shakespeare. It includes the most famous ones, such as Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet.
People first published the book seven years after Shakespeare’s death. There are only 230 copies of this book. That means that this book is extremely valuable.
One copy of it was lying in a library in France for 200 years. Nobody knew about its existence until a librarian accidentally found it. The library took great care of the book, as it is really special. Now people move the book back to the UK.
Difficult words: valuable (very important and worth a lot of money), existence (to be in the world), librarian (a person who works in a library).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
