THE COLLECTIONS

Preeminent in the world for its Shakespeare collection, the Folger
Shakespeare Library is an independent research facility with about
300,000 books and manuscripts on British and European literary,
cultural, political, religious, and social history from the fifteenth
through the eighteenth centuries. The Folger holds the largest
collection outside Britain of early English books, with about 50,000
volumes from the period 1475-1700 and 30,000 eighteenth-century
imprints. Its early Continental-imprint collection of 35,000 volumes
includes 450 incunables, a 2,000-volume Reformation collection, and
significant holdings in French and Dutch political pamphlets. The
manuscript collection, which numbers 55,000, is especially strong in
early correspondence and commonplace books and is extended by such
microfilm holdings as the State Papers Domestic from Edward VI through
Charles I and papers from the Cecil, Loseley, Harleian, and Lansdowne
collections. In secondary materials, the Library holds approximately
85,000 titles.
