Shakespeare's Dictionary (annotated, no less)?!

The Folger Shakespeare Library staff will be delving into the matter of whether the copy of John Baret’s An Alvearie or Quadruple Dictionarie, published in London in 1580, which two New York rare book dealers purchased on ebay is Will Shakespeare’s own copy, annotated in his own hand. How’s that for excitement leading up to Will’s birthday?
