Since we're discussing money...

Would someone tell me how much a first folio would have cost in 1623 and
how much that amount would have been in today's terms?

I have heard that the FF would have cost around a pound, but I'm not
sure of the accuracy of that figure, nor how much that would be in
today's money.

Thanks,
Marcia Eppich-Harris
