Shakespeare plays sell for £4.9m at auction
Charles Davis writes \"One of the earliest printed copies of Shakespeare\'s plays
has sold at a New York auction for £4.1m.
An anonymous private buyer bought the First Folio of the
Comedies, Histories and Tragedies, dated 1623.
It was expected to fetch £2.1m.
The £4.9m paid for the Four Folios is the highest price ever paid for a Shakespeare work.
