A portrait of William Shakespeare is seen in the Third Folio, in London, Wednesday, March 16, 2016. The Third Folio is estimated at 300,000-400,000 UK pounds (422,400-563,200 US dollars), includes Pericles for the first time and is illustrated with Shakespeareís iconic portrait by English engraver Martin Droeshout. William Shakespeare died 400 years ago, but his stock has never been higher. To coincide with the anniversary of the Bard's death, Christie's is selling copies of the first four editions of his plays - a collection the auctioneer's head of books, Margaret Ford, calls "the holy grail of publishing." The four folios are going on display in New York April 1-8 and London April 20-28 before being sold in London on May 25. (AP Photo/Kirsty Wigglesworth)
