While it may not satisfy scholarly needs, this may be worth a mention,
since economy is a consideration:  in 1954, Yale University Press
brought out a facsimile First Folio which is a photographic facsimile of
a First Folio then (and still?)  in the possession of the University,
and specifically of Yale's Elizabethan Club.  It had previously belonged
to the British collector Henry Huth.  The principal editor was Helge
Kokeritz.

I mention it because it went into at least three printings, and I have
seen copies of it for sale in used book stores (in the US) over the
years for $10-$20.
