The main library of the bibliophile Edwin B. Holden was sold at Anderson Galleries on 26-28 April 1928, realising $85,577.50 in total.
The fourth folio edition of Shakespeare's plays, like the third folio of 1663-4, includes Pericles and the six spurious plays The London Prodigall, The History of Thomas Lord Cromwell, Sir John Oldcastle, The Puritan Widow, A Yorkshire Tragedy and The Tragedy of Locrine. These had been previously published as late Elizabethan or early Jacobean quartos with attributions to Shakespeare or "W.S". The fourth folio may be regarded as the stateliest of all the four editions, being printed on a Royal Paper stock, distinctly larger than the sheets of the first, second or third folios. Printing was shared between three shops. Robert Roberts is known to have printed the Comedies and the preliminary leaves (see F. Bowers, Shakespeare Quarterly, July 1951, iii. 241-6).
Loosely inserted in this copy is A Concise Account of Garrick's Jubilee, held at Stratford-Upon-Avon, in Honour of Shakspeare, In 1769. And of the Commemorative Festivals in 1827 and 1830...(8vo, Stratford-upon-Avon: J. Ward, 1830, with folding ephemera at the end), original blue printed wrappers
