Shakespeare Quartos Archive opens access to Hamlet

The highly-anticipated Shakespeare Quartos Archive has been officially launched today with a complete digital collection1 of rare early editions of Hamlet.

For the first time, all 32 existing quarto copies of the play held by participating UK and US institutions are freely available online in one place. This initiative is jointly led by the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford and the Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington DC, through a joint transatlantic grant from Jisc in the UK and the National Endowment for the Humanities in the US.
