Man Faces Charges in Theft of First Folio

From the Sunderland Echo, word that a man is set to face trial in the theft of a Shakespeare treasure, one of the few things you can’t find at


A book dealer has denied stealing a 380-year-old Shakespeare first folio.

Raymond Scott, 53, appeared at Newcastle Crown Court yesterday, where he denied the three charges against him.

Scott is accused of theft, handling stolen goods and removing criminal property from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The charges come after a Shakespeare folio was stolen from Durham University Library in 1998.
