A fillip for fans of fine books today… A rare First Folio of Shakespeare’s plays has been found in a collection in Scotland. According to the BBC news pages, the copy just turned up in the library at Mount Stuart House on the Isle of Bute.

“Oh aye! Happens all the time! Priceless books we had nae idea aboot, just sittin oan the shelves…”

…a strangely-accented librarian did not say, recently. I mean, though. Imagine having that sort of collection.
