Rare first William Shakespeare edition found in ancient French port town library

A copy of William Shakespeare's First Folio, the first-ever compilation of the Bard's plays published in 1623, has been discovered in the library of an ancient port town in northern France. One of the world's most valuable and coveted books, the First Folio was uncovered when librarian Remy Cordonnier dusted off a copy of Shakespeare's works dating to the 18th century for an exhibition on English literature in the town of Saint-Omer near Calais. "It occurred to me that it could be an unidentified First Folio, with historic importance and great intellectual value," he told AFP. The book, published seven years after Shakespeare's death, was authenticated on Saturday by First Folio expert Eric Rasmussen from the University of Nevada. Rasmussen, who has written a book about his riveting two-decade hunt to catalogue all 232 existing copies of the book, said the 233rd copy was the first new version unearthed in a decade. He told AFP the book was "immediately identifiable" as an original due

Sotheby's to auction military and political leader Oliver Cromwell's coffin plate

A unique Cromwellian relic will come to the auction block on 9th December when an exquisitely engraved brass plate found resting on Oliver Cromwell’s chest when his body was exhumed in 1661 appears at Sotheby’s London auction of English Literature, History, Children’s Books and Illustrations. With the restoration of King Charles II in 1660, it was decreed that the bodies of those who had signed Charles I’s death warrant and subsequently become leading figures in the Protectorate but who had, rather inconveniently, already died of natural causes, should suffer the indignity of posthumous execution. Cromwell, the former Lord Protector, was subsequently disinterred from the Henry VII chapel at Westminster Abbey on 26 January 1661. Having been laid out at the Red Lion Inn in Holborn overnight, his corpse was conducted to Tyburn and hanged, drawn, and quartered, and his head placed on a spike above

Souls Grown Deep Foundation donates 57 works to Metropolitan Museum of Art

Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, announced today that 57 works by contemporary African American artists from the Southern United States have been donated to the Museum by the Souls Grown Deep Foundation from its William S. Arnett Collection. In addition to paintings, drawings, and mixed media works by acclaimed artists such as Thornton Dial, Lonnie Holley, and Nellie Mae Rowe, the major gift includes 20 important quilts dating from the 1930s to 2003 that were created by women artists based in the area around Gee’s Bend, Alabama. “We are an institution dedicated to telling the story of art across all times and cultures, and this extraordinary gift is critical to that commitment,” said Mr. Campbell in making the announcement. “It embodies the profoundly deep and textured

'Casablanca' upright piano sold for $3.4 million at frenzied sale at Bonhams in New York

The painted upright piano that adorned Rick's Cafe in the classic movie "Casablanca" fetched $3.4 million at auction Monday after a frenzied sale in New York. The orange piano -- on which Sam (Dooley Wilson) famously plays "As Time Goes By" at the request of his one-time love Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) -- was among 200 items from Hollywood's golden age that went under the hammer at Bonham's in New York. The piano featured prominently in the Oscar-winning 1942 romantic drama, with leading man Humphrey Bogart using it as a hiding place for the letters of transit that ultimately secure his former lover's safe passage to the United States. Dresses worn by Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Rita Hayworth were also auctioned, as well as a jacket worn by Clark Gable in "Gone With the Wind." The Lion costume worn by Bert Lahr in "The Wizard of Oz" was also put up for sale. Auctioneers had declined to estimate the Casablanca

Christie's New York announces 'Masterpieces Of Art Deco: The Marsha Miro Collection'

Christie’s presents Masterpieces Of Art Deco: The Marsha Miro Collection as part of its 20/21 Design sale, taking place on December 9 in New York. Marsha Miro was first drawn to Art Deco in the early 1980s. She stepped into this field at a fortuitous moment when great pieces were coming to market, very often for the first time from estates or from the heirs of the clients for whom they were originally made. Auctions in New York and in Europe, notably in Monte Carlo, brought forth masterful examples of the creativity of the great designers of this golden era. Miro brought to collecting the informed intelligence and the rigor that has marked her approach to life and underpinned her other roles, as Art Critic for the Detroit Free Press, as Architectural Historian at Cranbrook, the educational community in Bloomfeld
