The Tragedie of Macbeth

The Tragedie of Macbeth.

The publication of the First Folio in 1623 marked Macbeth's first ever appearance in print.

When Shakespeare first wrote his plays, he wrote for the actors in his company - not for publication.

The manuscripts therefore belonged to the company, rather than to Shakespeare himself. So it was members of his own company, the King's Men, who published the First Folio in 1623.
