A Canadian professor thinks he has identified William Shakespeare’s copy of Horace’s Odes.
The Globe and Mail reports that Robert Weir has spent the past four years examining and researching the book, which dates back to 1575.
He has discovered annotations and signatures — previously washed out — in the book that support his conclusion that the book is the first one known to come from Shakespeare’s library.
“Arguably, we’re talking about the most valuable book in the world,” Weir told the paper.
