«Ben Higgins has managed something we might have thought was by now impossible: he tells a completely fresh and fascinating story about the First Folio. Higgins's remarkable knack for uncovering new archival details gives us the deepest scholarly investigation yet undertaken into the lives of the men and women who produced Shakespeare's collected works. At the same time, Higgins uses each of the Folio publishers as a lens to reveal broader trends and networks in the book trade, offering an exciting and generative methodology for others to follow. Shakespeare's Syndicate is required reading for anyone interested in Shakespeare, his plays, and his life and afterlife in print.»
