Description"The Furness Memorial (Shakespeare) Library, Department of Special Collections, Van Pelt-Dietrich Library, University of Pennsylvania, was begun by Horace Howard Furness, Sr., and continued by Horace Howard Furness, Jr., to make possible their work on the Variorum Edition of the works of William Shakespeare. In 1933, Horace Howard Furness, Jr., donated the Library to Penn. A collection of primary and secondary sources, including both texts and images, that illuminate the theater, literature, and history of Shakespeare, Shakespearean texts, theatrical production, and criticism, Furness Library resources are now being selectively scanned and mounted here to make them available for class and research use and to draw attention to the richer resources available in the Library as a whole."
