Shakespeare on the auction block

A copy of the first folio is being auctioned in July:
The book is being sold by Dr Williams's Theological Library in London, which hopes the proceeds - expected to be more than £3m - will secure its future.
I figure if we put up a PayPal donation button now, our readers might be able to chip in enough.

By the way, what's this riff-raff and baggage-book doing in the library of a dissenting minister like Daniel Williams?
