Much ado about nothing by William Shakespeare( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary plot of Much Ado About Nothing turns on the courtship and scandal involving young Hero and her suitor, Claudio, but the witty war of words between Claudio’s friend Benedick and Hero’s cousin Beatrice often takes center stage. Set in Messina, the play begins as Don Pedro’s army returns after a victory. Benedick, a gentleman soldier, resumes a verbal duel with Beatrice, the niece of Messina’s governor, Leonato. Count Claudio is smitten by Leonato’s daughter, Hero. After Don Pedro woos her in disguise for Claudio, the two young lovers plan to marry in a week. To fill in the time until the wedding, Don Pedro and the others set about tricking Benedick and Beatrice into falling in love with each other. Meanwhile, Don Pedro’s disgruntled brother, Don John, plots to ruin Hero and halt her wedding. Claudio believes Don John’s deception, is convinced Hero has a lover, and, at the wedding, brutally rejects her. With Hero in hiding and falsely reported dead, Beatrice persuades Benedick to fight Claudio. Tragedy is averted when the bumbling city watch, having discovered Don John’s treachery, arrives and clears Hero’s name. With Claudio forgiven, both couples are ready to get married

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One third of the materials covered in this book were purchased by Henry Clay Folger (1857-1930) the American industrialist and eventual Chairman of the New York Company Standard Oil. The remaining two thirds were collected following his death. Together with his wife Emily Jordan Folger (1858-1936) Mr Folger assembled one of the most important private libraries in the United States of America. Their invaluable collection of books and manuscripts was bequeathed to the American people and is housed in the Folger Shakespeare Library which endures as a monument to their dedication and generosity. Since the library's opening in April 1932 many further materials have been acquired and today it has the third largest collection of early English prints in the world and the largest collection of Shakespeareana."--Publisher's website
