The City of London has such a monument to Heminges and Condell,
recognising their role in making Shakespeare. Anyone using the Guildhall
Library can find it in a minute or two, though sadly it has a bust of
Shakespeare rather than our two heroes.

Best wishes,

The Huntington Library, in San Marino, California, has a large
Shakespeare garden with the required statue looking on. Maybe the best
monument (though it's not Shakespeare) is the Folger Shakespeare
Library's outdoor statue of Puck in Washington, D.C. It has an
unobstructed view of the Capitol building, which it faces. The
inscription on the pedestal is, of course, "Lord, what fools these
mortals be."

Regarding Shakespeare monuments, there is a Puck on the lawn of the
Shakespeare
Festival campus in Montgomery, Alabama.

I've always had a soft spot for the statue of a Fool in front of the
Philadelphia Free Library at Logan Circle, dedicated to the Shakespeare
scholars of Philadelphia-a noble bunch to be sure, we are, but not
without humor.

Best,
Hugh Grady

In Stratford, Ontario, there are the Shakespeare Gardens, and at the
Festival Theater, a (I'd guess life-sized) chrome statue of Shakespeare.
But really, most of the town of Stratford is dedicated to the Bard.

Cheers,
Marcia
