Cymbeline King of Britaine (facs. 1st Folio 1623)

Shakespeare’s Cymbeline is one of his least-performed plays. Its retelling of a famous tale from Boccaccio explores themes of marriage, seduction, trust, and women’s honor that are frequent focuses of other plays, like Othello and Much Ado about Nothing. This is a facsimile edition of the play from the First Folio edition of 1623.
