The Robben Island Shakespeare is a copy of The Alexander Text of the Complete Works of Shakespeare that political prisoner Sonny Venkatrathnam took with him during his stay at South Africa's Robben Island prison. The text is marked with the signatures of fellow prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, whom Venkatrathnam asked to mark their favorite passages.
