This is not quite an answer to Hardy's query but there is an astonishing
mass of information about the sales history of the First Folio from 1623
to the present in the first volume of Anthony James West's The
Shakespeare First Folio: The History of the Book, recently published by
Oxford University Press. There are three further volumes to come,
including a new census of copies.

Anthony James West has published a series of articles in The Book
Collector, Analytical & Enumerative Bibliography, The Library, and maybe
elsewhere providing a census of the First Folio.  He has a multi-volume
history of the Folio coming out from Oxford and I believe the first
volume has just been published.  This may not help with F2, F3, and F4,
but the STC and ESTC should give some help with them.
