This chapter considers some of the ways a First Folio can be too valuable, including some reasons for recent institutional sales. It then traces the final transfer of a copy in the period covered by the book, the return of the stolen Durham copy, the coverage of the ensuing trial, its apparent parallels with the story of Edward Dering in the Introduction, and the difficulties of incorporating this story into the overall narrative of the book.
