"Collecting Shakespeare in the New Millennium:  The First Folio to
Classic Comics"

 The 17th Annual Louis Faugeres Bishop III Lecture and Reception
 Presented by Richard Kuhta, Librarian
 Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington, DC

 Thursday February 28, 2002 * 5:00 pm
 Scholarly Communication Center
 Archibald S. Alexander Library, 4th Floor
 College Ave. Campus

Why does a first folio sell for $6 million? What makes the early
editions of Shakespeare's work so interesting? The Rutgers University
Libraries are pleased to present a slide presentation and discussion by
Richard J. Kuhta, librarian of the Folger Shakespeare Library, who will
address these and other questions. Mr. Kuhta's slide lecture will begin
with the historical significance of Shakespeare's printed texts in the
17th century and move to a discussion of some of the trends in the
marketplace today for collectors and libraries.

Mr. Kuhta completed his graduate studies at the Shakespeare Institute
(England) and Trinity College Dublin (Ireland). He has written and
lectured on printing history in the Irish Literary Renaissance (Cuala
Press), and the paintings of Henry Fuseli, a late-eighteenth century
artist of Shakespearean themes, as well as doing consulting
work in the field of library automation. Mr. Kuhta was University
Librarian at St. Lawrence University from 1986-1994, where he presented
the prestigious Frank P. Piskor Faculty Lecture in 1994. He was
appointed librarian of the Folger Shakespeare Library in February 1994.
