Summary
In 1998, a copy of the most important printed work in the English language was snatched from Durham University. Ten years later, an eccentric book dealer tried to convince the world that he didnt steal it. This is the inside story of how one mans encounter with a First Folio turned into a drama of Shakespearian proportions. It takes a confident conman to try to fool the worlds Shakespeare experts, but thats what 53-year-old book dealer Raymond Scott allegedly tried to do when he walked into Washington DCs Folger Shakespeare Library (the worlds leading authority on Shakespeare), intent on authenticating the book hed been given by his Cuban girlfriends family. In Stealing Shakespeare we uncover the extraordinary story behind the book, how librarians and rare book experts turned detective to help solve uncover clues to the books true identity
